The service award of the Wehrmacht was awarded to all members of the Wehrmacht, who had stood on the deadline of 16 March 1935, or later in active military service. A "non-honorable retirement" from the Wehrmacht excluded the claim to the awarding and wearing of the award. The service medal was awarded in the following four classes and a special class founded on 10 March 1939:
4-year service in the Wehrmacht (DA IV)
12-year service in the Wehrmacht (DA III)
18-year service in the Wehrmacht (DA II)
25-year service in the Wehrmacht (DA I)
40-year service in the Wehrmacht (special class from 1939)
This service award, like all previous Prussian service awards, was carried on a cornflower blue medal ribbon on the left side of the chest, with a miniature eagle in the color of the respective awarded class. For the Army and the Kriegsmarine this was a silver Wehrmacht eagle with outstretched wings for the 4- and 12-year service and a golden eagle at 18- and 25-year service. At 40 years of service, in addition to the golden eagle, a semicircular oak leaf wreath was also placed below the eagle. The service awards of the Air Force had an air force eagle instead of the army eagle.
