MND (CS) Commemorative Medal


Consul-At-Arms asked for details of the MND-CS 90 day award. This is the "Multinational Division Central-South Commemorative Medal" (Medal pamiatkowy Wielonarodowej Dywizji Centrum-Poludnie), and is a non-official commemorative decoration.
Instituted in the fall of 2003, by the Commander of the Multinational Division Central-South in Iraq. It is awarded to all servicemen and women, as well as to civilians serving with the Division, irrespective of nationality, who have completed 90 days of service in the operational zone. First medals were awarded in January 2004.[link]

Thanks very much for the information. My former unit (B Co., 323rd MI Bn; since renamed D Co.) worked in support of the MND-CS from September 2003 through March 2004 when the division was headquartered at Camp Babylon. We had teams stationed in each of MND-CS's five provinces.

This is the very first time I've seen it the medal, although we did get a nice MND-CS patch that the U.S. wouldn't let us wear.

I am a US officer and spent a lot of time supporting the Polish Division in 2003 and 2004 while they were deploying to and stationed Camp Babylon. Is there some way that I can apply for this award? I know that I cannot wear it on my uniform but would like to have a remembrance of my time with the Polish forces.
