Starburst for Extreme Heroism: Highest medal rewarded for bravery in combat to be awarded in the Imperium. The SEH is only awarded to individuals who show extraordinary accomplishment on the battlefield in spite of heavy risk to life and limb, heavy resistance, or injury or possibility of death. Needless to say, the SEH is usually awarded posthumously.

Medal for Conspicuous Gallantry: The second highest award for military bravery and valor. The MCG is awarded for distinguished acts of battlefield valor, though usually ones that do not incur as much risk or danger as is incurred for the SEH.

Meritous Conduct Under Fire: Lowest award for bravery awarded in Imperial military. The medal was largely given out for political and morale reasons as much as for genuine battlefield valor.

Example 2: Someone with 1 SEH and 1 Purple Heart would have their ribbons arranged thus:
