The United Nations Advance Mission in Cambodia Medal honors military personnel who carried out service on behalf of the United Nations to establish and maintain peaceful communications between combatant Cambodian groups between October 1, 1991 and March 15, 1992. Eligible individuals must have served for 90 days consecutively during that period. The mission also aimed to advance land mine clearance training and implementation.
The medal is bronze and features the United Nations emblem of a globe encircled by a laurel wreath. The letters “UN” appear at the top of the medal, and the reverse reads “IN THE SERVICE OF PEACE.” The ribbon is bisected by a thin vertical white stripe flanked on either side by a stripe of dark blue, a thinner yellow stripe, a red stripe, and a light blue stripe proceeding outward.
