       $ 12.99

The term "significant activity" is determined by theater commanders and is normally deemed to be participation in a U.S. military operation considered to hold a high degree of scope, impact, and international significance that the operation warrants the presentation of a permanent service medal. The individual criteria for the Armed Forces Service Medal specify that a service member must perform at least thirty consecutive days in a geographical theater region to qualify for the decoration. Aircrew members may earn the award if a total of thirty mission days was performed flying into and out of the given area.
