The Army Achievement Medal

The only paperwork required to submit for an Army Achievement Medal is the DA Form 638. No separate citation or other attachments required.

The AAM is awarded to any member of the Armed Forces who distinguished himself or herself by meritorious service or achievement of a lesser degree than required for award of the Army Commendation Medal.

Narrative description of meritorious service or achievement for award of the AAM will be limited to bullet format in the space allowed on the DA Form 638. Certificate citations for the Army Achievement Medal are limited to six lines. Note that, according to Secretary of the Army guidance, a comma should not be used before the word "and" in the final sentence (need reference).
