I received that medal when I was in the Marine Corps, for several years I had worked with the Toys for Tots program and other events with the public. I'll see if I can look up the award citation. I would think that all 4 events or achievements would be cited in the 638.

The MOVSM cannot be awarded for a single event. The award is written up on DA 638 and requires an O5 or above approval. The achievements must be of a sustained and direct nature (over a period of time) be to the civilian and military community, and not in conjunction with normal duties.

AR 600-8-22 para 2-23.

You will not receive a certificate as none exists. It is a service medal so the approved 638 is needed for you to add to your ERB but cannot be filed in your OMPF because it is not a downgraded award. I commend you on giving back to the community.

I was awarded this and I still have my 638 if you would like...I could email you a copy of it on digits or at least the bullets, and how everything was put in.

As Martyaa mentioned there is no certificate for this, but you just need the 638 to add to your ERB.

I'm on AKO, so let me know if you would like that emailed to you

I have three Joes who have been doing great work I wish I put them in for this award. Can someone please help me with the bullets and such? I understand the events listed can't be taskings/details/voluntold items. There is no hour stipulation as well. My Chain of Command has told me I will probaly have to provide contact info of someone who can certify the hours/days spent as well depicting the events but outside of that I'm lost. Please forward any info you have to christopher.lee.kratzner@us.army.mil

How do you go about getting one of these awards? Do you just volunteer your time, at various events up to a certain amount of hours? BTW, I don't want to sound like I'm just saying this to get an extra ribbon on my Class A's. It would be nice to be rewarded for helping a community etc.

Hello all. I'm trying to write a 638 but really suck at writing bullets. If anyone has a sample of one written for this I would greatly appreciate it. I just need to have a general idea of how to write this up. BTW its for one of my soldiers. My email is DavidR213@gmail.com or david.ramirez10@us.army.mil.

I have sent information via my AKO account to those who provided email addresses. I've been working the MOVSM program in various commands for the past seven years. Most of the MOVSMs I've forwarded for command approval are from volunteers who work within either the Boy or Girl Scouting programs, but you can use the 638 to justify a wider variety of programs.

Settummanque!
