Medals are items that give permanent buffs, like accessories. In War Mode the player can equip three medals at a time, in Hard mode two and pre-Hard mode one. They are rewarded by the President NPC for accomplishing certain feats and don't give very high buffs but they are a nice addition to any loadout, on top of your armor bonuses and accessories.
