Arctic Star medals have been and will continue to be issued to eligible veterans. It is anticipated that all entitled veterans will have received their awards by summer 2013. Applications received from widows will then be processed followed by those from next of kin.

There are no plans to publish the names of those who are entitled to receive the Arctic Star.
