* Contributions demonstrate exceptionally distinguished service of significance to DoD as a whole or distinguished service of such exceptional significance to a DoD Component or function that recognition at the Component level is considered insufficient.  

* The service or assistance may have been rendered at considerable personal sacrifice and inconvenience that was motivated by patriotism, good citizenship, and a sense of public responsibility. 

* Normally, it is required that nominees have a direct working relationship with the most senior officials in the Federal government, e.g., Secretary of Defense, Deputy Secretary of Defense, Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff, Secretary of State.
