Multi-National Forces and Observers Medal
An international military decoration first created on March 24, 1982, created under the authority of the Director-General of the Multinational Force and Observers established to monitor a neutral ceasefire zone, between Egypt and Israel, as the result of the Yom Kippur War of 1973. Retroactive to August 1981, presented to U.S. service members serving at least ninety cumulative days as a member of the Multinational Force and Observers. On March 15, 1985, the time period was increased to a minimum of 170 days. The time frame could be waived if the award was presented posthumously, a service member was medically evacuated from the region, or if the Director-General of the Multinational Force and Observers presented the award for a specific act or special case.
