Poignant Missing Star Design by Richard Masters
Richard Masters designed and Renata Gordon sculpted the medal's reverse. A field of stars represents America's past, present, and future veterans, In the middle, one star is missing, representing the nation's loss. Replacing it is a single incuse star at the bottom of this face to represent those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Just above that incuse star is the inscription "SERVICE AND SACRIFICE." The medal's obverse design, an eagle spreading its wings as it prepares for flight, represents initiative, determination, and personal courage. Five stars to the right of the bird represent the five branches of the military. A rim frame bears the inscriptions "HONORING AMERICA'S VETERANS." This face was designed by Benjamin Sowards and sculpted by Joseph Menna.
Paul C. Balan designed and Renata Gordon sculpted the obverse of the silver dollar. The American Legion emblem is at the center, backed by oak leaves and a lily.Patricia Lucas-Morris's reverse design, which was sculpted by Michael Gaudioso, features the crossed flags of the United States and the American Legion. Above them are a fleur de lis, which represents the foundation of the Legion in France, and the inscription "100 YEARS OF SERVICE."
