The physical awards for the District Award of Merit, the old Explorer
Achievement Award, and the Distinguished Commissioner Service Awards are
plaques - you know, the wooden kind :)
The Distingushed Commissioner Service Award has, in addition to the knot, a
bolo tie as the wearable insignia: bronze for unit commissioners, gold for
administrative (roundtable, assistant district and district commissioners),
and silver for council commissioners and assistants. The same award is also
available for Explorer Service Team members, but it is slightly different
(Explorer E logo instead of Universal Emblem).
The OA Distinguished Service Award has a silver arrowhead pendant on a white
ribbon emroidered with red arrows. Not surprising you haven't seen this one
- it's a rarity.
Hope this helps :)
