This article is intended as aid to help military service men, women and veterans in replacing lost or damaged military certificates received as an award for training, recognition, valor, ceromonial and other similar documents.
Many Air Force, Army, Marines and Navy military veterans have important documents such as awards, diplomas, certificates, etc. that have been lost, damaged or destroyed over the years due to moving, disasters, etc. Unless great care has been taken to preserve military award documents, there hasn’t been much one could do up until now, to replace lost or destroyed military certificates since the government does not provide replacement certificates to military personnel or veterans. The only available option is to purchase a replacement certificate through the vendor.
Many hours of researching shows that aside from the government itself, Cylent Studios appears to be the only other source for military replacement certificates that are created according to original government standards. Many of their training certificates do not require documentation or other proof except for most valor awards such as the Medal of Honor, Silver Star, Navy Cross, Purple Heart, etc. where you may be required to provide a copy of your old certificate, DD-214 or DD-215 and /or other Government Documentation to place an order for an replacement replica to prove you have been authorized to receive a particular award. Cylent Studios does not sell blank military award certificates to individiuals. Blank military award certificates are supplied for official government orders only.
Cylent Studios reconstructs and re-creates replica’s of a veteran’s lost or damaged military award and military training certificates from scratch. Most of the time you don’t even have to supply the original document if you still have yours, since they have all artwork, logos and other certificate information on file in their military database. They will even personalize your military replacement certificate with your name, rank, dates,duty location and citations where applicable.
Some of the military replacement award and training certificates Cylent Studios replicates include; Honorable Discharge, Bronze Star, Purple Heart, Combat Action Ribbon, and others for all branches of the military including the USMC Marines Awards, Army Awards, Navy Awards and Air Force Awards. Other popular military certificates include custom military ceremonial certificates that can be presented to an individual soldier, unit, battalion or regiment during special award ceremonies and other occasions.
Military award replacement certificates also make a wonderful gift to returning military service men and women veterans as a way to honor them for their duty to country when one has not been provided by the government issuing agency.
Replacement certificates for lost military awards is a valuable service to our soldiers and veterans who are unable to get replacements through their particular service branch or other government agencies. It is nice to know that someone out there is looking out for our men and women in uniform when it comes to replacing military award certificates.
