Does Anyone Know What A Joint Meritorious Service Medal Is F ...

I recently got a copy of my DD214 and it is listed as one of the medals I have. I looked on medal charts and it’s not listed. I was in the Marines during the first Gulf War/Desert Storm and was awarded a Joint Meritorious Unit Award however this medal is also listed on my DD 214. I am hoping to mount all my awards and medals and would like to know what this medal is. Wondering if this is supposed to be the Defense Meritorious Service Medal? I did several ops with the Italians, Spaniards, and Israelis during the war. Thanks for reading. Any help is appreciated.

Usmc Good Conduct Medal Circa 1945?

Hello I would like to know what the USMC Good Conduct Medal would look like for someone that received it around 1945. I understand there is a new version and an older version. I thought the older version is the one that was given out in 1945 because I have seen it called the “World War II Good Conduct Medal” on websites selling replacement medals but I have read that that medal was not given out after 1935, the medal that has the “U.S. Marine Corps.” clasp with the rifle above the medal. Which version was given out around 1945?

Do All Us Military Ribbons Come With Medals?

I received a total of five ribbons from four years of service with the USMC. I received only one medal accompanied by its matching ribbon. The other four badges/medals (if any) weren’t provided. Is this normal? I was discharged honorably in the 1990′s.
