Meet our NCI Agency staff awarded NATO's Meritorious Service Medal


Several staff members from the NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCI Agency) have been awarded the Meritorious Service Medal for their dedicated service to NATO.


The Meritorious Service Medal is NATO's most prestigious honour and is presented by the NATO Secretary General. To meet the award criteria, individuals must have demonstrated a profound commitment to the continued success of the Alliance.
