What is a White Clover Medal?
The White Clover Medal is a National award that was developed and approved a number of years ago. It is recognition for an AMVETS member who exemplifies service to veterans, most often service to our hospitalized veterans. There is not one specific set of criteria; in fact various Departments have differing criteria.
However, it is frequently used to recognize a Post Service Officer or an individual who has performed some special task(s) in the line of service to hospitalized veterans.
Some departments/posts award it to the person leading the most successful “White Clover Drive” since the money raised is frequently used for the benefit of patients at the Veterans Affairs Medical Centers.
Some department/posts award it to the person who represents their “AMVET of the Year,” based on individuals impressive accomplishments in service to veterans. Typically, departments/posts using this recognition make one award per year.
