Use in the Real world

The Medal of Honor is the highest military decoration awarded to United States military personal, it's been only awarded less than 3,500 times since it was established on July 12nd, 1862.

Empire Use in Runescape

Due to the fact that in Runescape, it's impossible to die and stay dead, and so players don't have any fear when facing opponents on the battlefield, and the fact anyone could do the action as people do in real life several times (while dying several times in the process) the Medal of Honor in the Empire is awarded only for extreme dedication on the battlefield, and can only be handed out by the Emperor, if the Emperor is unable to award the Medal of Honor, then the Supreme Commander of the Imperial Military shall hand it out. (The Lord/Lady Field Marshal)

When there is no special event happening in the forums, and your email signature, you're to wear the Ribbon at all times except for special events. The Medal of Honor comes before all other medals and awards, and there are no stars to note multiple awarded Medal of Honors, like with most other medals.
