a. Authorization. Navy Department General Order (N.D.G.O.) No. 84 of 5 August 1936.

b. Navy Expeditionary Medal Eligibility Requirements. Awarded to U.S.
Navy service members who have actually landed on foreign territory and engaged in operations against armed opposition, or operated under
circumstances deemed to merit special recognition, and for which no service
or campaign medal was awarded.

Only personnel attached to one of the approved ships or units during the eligibility period, and who actually participated in the given operation, are
eligible for the Navy Expeditionary Medal (NEM).. This includes personnel attached to a squadron or unit embarked in a ship during the eligible period
for that ship. Members of rear echelons, transients, observers, and personnel assigned for short periods of Temporary Additional Duty (TAD) or Training Duty (TD) are not normally eligible for the award. However, an individual will be given consideration in those instances when the local commander certifies a particular and significant contribution. Such certification should be submitted to the CNO/CMC, via the fleet commander who exercised operational control in the area involved. CNO maintains a list of eligible ships/units.

c. Authorized Operations. The following are the most recently authorized expeditions:

CUBA 03 Jan 61 -23 Oct 62
THAILAND 16 May 62 -10 Aug 62

d. Awarding Authority. Commanding officers shall ensure appropriate
service record entries are made for eligible enlisted personnel, and issue
letters of eligibility for eligible officer personnel. No citation or certificate
will be issued.

e. Limitations. The Navy Expeditionary Medal (NEM) may only be
awarded cases in which Navy units were the sole participants in the
designated operation. In cases where an operation involved participation
of units from other branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal (AFEM) shall be considered the more appropriate
award. See paragraph 10 below for further details regarding the Armed
Forces Expeditionary Medal (AFEM).
