Armed Forces Service Medal


Armed Forces Service Medal


Armed Forces Service Medal is a theater service award which is presented to those service members who engage in “significant activity” for which no other campaign or service medal is authorized. Armed Forces Service Medal was originally intended to be a replacement for the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, however the two awards are considered separate awards with different award criteria. The primary difference between the two is that the Armed Forces Service Medal is awarded for actions “through which no foreign armed opposition or imminent threat of hostile action was encountered”. This definition separates the two medals in that the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal is normally awarded for combat operations and other combat support missions.
