The French Médaille Militaire was first instituted in 1852. It was issued to non-commissioned officers or enlisted personnel who distinguished themselves by acts of bravery in action against an enemy force. Commissioned officers are normally not elligible. The Médaille Militaire is one of rarest French decorations to be bestowed upon foreigners.

One university member was awarded a French Médaille Militaire.
