Cross of Glory
The Cross of Glory is the highest award given by the Galactic Republic. The recipients of the Cross of Glory have performed consistent service above and beyond the call of duty and have personally and significantly contributed to the protection of the Republic through their direct actions.
"For extraordinary acts of valour, heroism and self-sacrifice during the Battle of Kril'Dor, allowing the Crystallis and her strike group to escape the Lamprey during the Battle of Kril’Dor at the cost of his own life, and for acts of heroism and singular daring during a routine patrol turned nuclear threat, saving the lives of everyone aboard Carrick Station. McCall’s actions were in keeping with the highest traditions of military service. His bravery in the face of impossible odds reflects great credit upon himself and the Republic military. The Navy has lost one of its best."
The Hero's Cross, also known as the Cross of Heroes, is the second-highest decoration awarded to members of the Republic military for service above and beyond the call of duty and extraordinary valour. The act or acts of heroism must have been so notable and have involved risk of life so extraordinary as to set the individual apart from his or her comrades.
Medal of Valour
