Numbers Issued: 762 Bronze


"As this medal is issued the threat of war is still upon us. The theme I have chosen is not peace but rather 'Building Toward Unity.' It focuses attention upon one of the first methods of communication, which today has reached out into many facets such as Radio, Television, etc. My contention being that through communication the youth of all nations will reach closed understanding. The reverse shows an eagle freeing himself from chains of bondage. A symbol of America to Americans, a symbol of freedom to people of other lands."
