The awards section of the G-1/PSD is responsible for the processing of awards for the 13th COSCOM. These awards include: Legion or Merit (LOM), Meritorious Service Medal (MSM), Army Commendation Medal (ARCOM), Army Achievement Medal (AAM), and COSCOM Certificates. The awards clerk will receive the pre-awards packets from the units and start the processing through the COSCOM and III Corps. Units exempt from processing ARCOM are 1st Medical Group and 64th Corps Support Group. The process requires communication between units, battalions, and members of the COSCOM support staff.
