The Bronze Shield is awarded to soldiers of all ranks who have gone above and beyond the call of duty and when saving the lives of injured or captured comrades at great risk to their own lives.

The medal is a simple bronze shield engraved with the unit insignia of the rescued soldier. It is traditionally presented by the commanding officer of the rescued soldier's unit. This medal can be a point of contention between units, as bestowing it is sometimes seen as a loss of face.
