Did you know? In August of 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed Executive Order 11231, establishing The Vietnam Service Medal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Designed by Thomas Hudson, the suspension ribbon reflects the former South Vietnam Flag and the green trip represents the “jungle nature” of the war. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
The medal was awarded to all members of the armed forces who served in Vietnam between July 3, 1965 and March 28, 1973 and there are a total of 17 campaigns authorized for it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
Interested in learning more about Marine Corps heraldry and the Vietnam War? Visit us at NMMC to see this Vietnam Service Medal and the other artifacts in our collection. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
