    Chief Of Staff Medal of Appreciation

    Besides the above decorations and citations that were instituted by law in 1973, the Government of Israel instituted on April 26, 1981 a decoration called the Chief Of Staff Medal of Appreciation (Ot haaraha).

    This medal can be awarded for acts of superior importance that contribute directly or indirectly to the strengthening of the IDF and that significantly benefit the security of Israel.

    At a ceremony in Tel Aviv IDF headquarters the Chief Of Staff Medal of Appreciation was awarded to colonel Ilan Ramon, who died in the explosion of the Space Shuttle Columbia on February 1, 2003, as he was serving as Israel's first astronaut. The medal was presented to the widow and family of Ilan Ramon by the Chief of Staff, General Moshe Ya'alon and the commander of the Air Force, major general Dan Halutz.

    The decoration was awarded on account of the way Ilan Ramon "represented the State of Israel and IDF while showing love and loyalty to his tradition and his people."

    Do any specific awards exist for former members of Jewsih Brigade under British command and its offshoot Tilhas Tizig Gesheften? Or for Jewish volunteers in the Spanish Civil War?
    I collect, therefore I am.
