Navy Expeditionary Medal


SKU: N/A Categories: , , , , ,

Created through a Navy Department General Order promulgated on August 5, 1936, serves as something of a “catch-all” decoration for U.S. Navy personnel. Two of its primary requirements—that recipients have actually landed on foreign territory and engaged in operations against armed opposition, or operated under circumstances that are subsequently deemed to merit special recognition—are essentially secondary to the caveat that the operation is not represented by another service or campaign medal.
