The Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal was established by President George W. Bush by Executive Order on March 12, 2003. The Bronze Medal is awarded to members of the United States Armed Forces in recognition of 30 days consecutive or 60 days nonconsecutive service in military expeditions to combat terrorism since September 11, 2001. To be eligible for the award, the service must have been provided in a nation that is currently recognized as a base for anti-terrorism operations by the United States Department of Defence. Recipients of the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal or the Armed Forces Service Medal who served in operations to combat terrorism since September 11, 2001, may also qualify for the award. Likewise, the Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal may be awarded in lieu of the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal or the Armed Forces Service Medal. Service in actual combat that is less than the time requirements and service curtailed by death or injury inflicted in action is also eligible for the award.
The Medal may be awarded posthumously.
An arrowhead emblem device may be worn on the ribbon of Army and Air Force personnel to denote assault landings and a Fleet Marine Force Operation Insignia may be worn on the ribbon of Navy personnel to reward ground combat. Additionally, a bronze service star emblem is worn on the ribbon to denote participation in approved operations. A silver star is worn to denote the award of 5 bronze stars.
