National Defense Medals with Gendarmerie clasp. HISTORY: Of recent creation (decree of 21/04/1982) this decoration was created by Charles Hernu (Minister of Defence). He took over the idea of General de Boissieu (Grand Chancellor of the Legion of Honour - former Chief of Staff of the Army), who wanted to reward soldiers performing national service as well as those on active service. This medal reduces the time required to obtain one of the national orders or the Military Medal.
