ISSUE FULL SIZE Selected Marine Corps Reserve Medal M0044

Selected Marine Corps Reserve Medal:

Criteria: Awarded for outstanding performance and conduct during three years of enlisted service in the Marine Corps Selected Reserve. First created in 1925 as the Fleet Marine Reserve Medal, this is the oldest of the Reserve Good Conduct Medals. In 1939 the name of the decoration was changed to the Organized Marine Corps Reserve Medal. In 1984, the decoration adopted its current name. As of January 1, 1996, the qualifying period of service is three years. Additional awards are denoted by bronze service stars. Reserve Good Conduct Medals are typically intended only for enlisted personnel and are not eligible to be presented to officers. The primary difference between the regular Good Conduct Medal and the Reserve Good Conduct Medal is that the Good Conduct Medal is only issued for active duty service while the reserve equivalent is bestowed for reserve duties such as drill and annual training. The Armed Forces Reserve Medal is a similar decoration which is awarded for ten years of honorable reserve service and is presented to both officers and enlisted personnel.
