Original full sized current issue US Iraq Campaign Medal and ribbon, as issued.
The Iraq Campaign Medal is a military award of the United States armed forces which was created by Executive Order 13363 of President George W. Bush on November 29, 2004. The Iraq Campaign Medal was designed by the U.S. Army Institute of Heraldry. The Iraq Campaign Medal became available for general distribution in June 2005. It is awarded to any member of the U.S. military who has performed duty within the borders of Iraq (or its territorial waters) for a period of thirty consecutive days or sixty non-consecutive days. The medal is retroactive to March 19, 2003 and is active until a date to be determined. Personnel who have been engaged in combat with an enemy force, or personnel who have been wounded in combat or wounded as a result of a terrorist attack within Iraq, may receive the Iraq Campaign Medal regardless of the number of days spent within the country. In addition, each day participating in aerial missions as a “regularly assigned air crew member of an aircraft flying sorties into, out of, within or over Iraq and in direct support of the military operations” establishes a single day of eligibility, when the required minimum days of eligibility are accrued, the medal may be awarded. The medal is also awarded posthumously to any service member who dies in the line of duty within Iraq, including from non-combat injuries such as accidents and mishaps. The Iraq Campaign Medal may be awarded with the arrowhead device for qualified soldiers. The Iraq Campaign Medal may be awarded with the combat operation insignia for qualified sailors assigned to Marine Corps units. The following are the established combat campaigns authorized for service stars to the Iraq Campaign Medal. In June 23rd 2011 a DOD announcement closed the Iraqi Sovereignty phase and authorized an additional service star for participation in Operation New Dawn.
