Medals bestow honour, recognition and commemorate an individual’s achievement or participation in notable events.
Recently, the Support Brigade held a Medal Presentation Ceremony to publicly recognise members of the Brigade who have performed outstandingly through service and their participation in notable operational deployments.
The presentations were made by the Brigade Commander, Colonel Murphy Pryce.
In his remarks, Colonel Pryce noted that “medals which were originally reserved for overseas deployments are now presented for service given locally to our country, which is a step in the right direction.
Commanding Officer, Support and Services Battalion, Lieutenant Colonel Tanya Spence also emphasised that the moment was a “deserving one for the hard working men and women of the Support and Services Battalion.”
The Medals presented were: The Medal of Honour for General Service with Clasp 2021 and The Medal of Honour for Long Service and Good Conduct and the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Medal.
There is now a look forward to Armed Forces Day this year, where more Medals are to be presented, as we continue to move Forward, and provide “Service to Support” Jamaica.[Best_Wordpress_Gallery id=”76″ gal_title=”Recognizing Service”]
