UGANDA'S MILITARY DECORATIONS AND MEDALS
In the history of Uganda, there was no established way of recognizing the people who had contributed greatly to the shaping of this country. In 2001, the National Resistance Movement (NRM) and Parliament of Uganda passed a Law stipulating the details of type of medals to be awarded.
Uganda’s military decorations and medals are awarded to members of the Uganda People’s Defense Forces (UPDF) and other Ugandan military personnel in recognition of their service, valor, and achievements. Here are some of the most prominent military decorations and medals awarded in Uganda: The Order of Katonga, The Rwenzori Star, The Masaba star, The Damu Medal, and The Luwero Triangle Medal.
