DOT 9/11 Medal. Authorized by the Secretary of Transportation on 11
February 2003.

a. Eligibility requirements. Awarded to employees of the Department of Transportation and private citizens for meritorious service resulting from
unusual and outstanding achievement in response to the attacks on September
11, 2001. The award may be made posthumously and the decoration and certificate presented to the next of kin with appropriate ceremony. New recommendations for the 9/11 Medal are not authorized. Specifically this award
is authorized for the following personnel:

(1) Employees of the DOT who were on scene at the World Trade Center Complex in New York, the crash site in Pennsylvania, or at the Pentagon on September 11, 2001 and performed a role in the initial rescue and recovery operations.

(2) All personnel directly involved in the evacuation of lower Manhattan
to include DOT employees, masters and crews of commercial vessels, and
masters and crews of recreational boats that actually transported evacuees
during the evacuation on September 11, 2001. The level of effort must clearly
set the member above that described in the 9/11 Ribbon.

(3) Personnel that demonstrated extraordinary participation or leadership
while patrolling harbors, securing critical infrastructure facilities, escorting
high interest vessels, and conducting boardings of vessels entering U.S.
waters during the period of September 11, 2001 to September 11, 2002. The
level of effort must clearly set the member above that described in the 9/11 Ribbon.

(4) Employees of the DOT who demonstrated extraordinary dedication
or leadership between September 11, 2001 and September 11, 2002.
Participation must have been at an exceptional level to warrant consideration
for the awarding of the 9/11 Medal. The level of effort must clearly set the
member well above that described in the 9/11 Ribbon.

b. Submission requirements. Commanding officers of Coast Guard units
must forward a complete list of names for those individuals eligible with a summary of action, not longer than one page, for each person via the chain
of command to the Area Commander. In the event that actions of a group of individuals were very similar in nature, and can easily be described in a single page, commands may group these names together and attach them to a single summary of action for submission.
