Records of medals received by individual members of the Air Force (and other branches of the military) would be part of their Official Military Personnel Files (OMPFs). The National Archives does not maintain these personnel records for active members of the military; those are held by individual branches of the military and--for personal privacy reasons--would not be available to the public. OMPFs for discharged or deceased veterans are held at the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) in St. Louis. Most of these records are still not available to the public (i.e. are not part of our archival holdings), again for personal privacy reasons. You can find more information at these websites:
