The presentation of a medal of honor to an officer or enlisted man in the military service, awarded under the joint resolution of Congress approved July 12, 1862, and the act of Congress approved March 3, 1863, will always be made with formal and impressive ceremonial.

The recipient will, when practicable, be ordered to Washington, D. C., and the presentation will be made by the President, as Commander in Chief, or by such representative as the President may designate.

When not practicable to have the presentation at Washington, the details of time, place, and ceremony will be prescribed by the Chief of Staff for each case.

On campaign, the presentation will be made by the division or higher commander.
