Many of our ancestors have a military past. Veterans often received awards or decorations for their efforts or accomplishments.

You can easily add these awards to someone's profile. Just create a new event (you can find the dates in the service records) and add a picture of the medal, ribbon, .... (and even a comment). It will appear in the timeline of that person. Under media you'll find an overview of all the awards and decorations.

Some examples (click on 'timeline' and/or 'media'):

To make it easier, we give you some links.
