USS Valley Forge, was a 27,100-ton Ticonderoga class aircraft carrier and  was the only U.S. aircraft carrier in the Western Pacific when the Korean War broke out. The Valley Forge made four separate combat tours in Korea. The Valley Forge was altered into an amphibious assault ship in 1961 so as to carry helicopter-born Marines. From 1965 to 1969 the Valley Forge conducted combat operations in Vietnam.

Dates: 1965-73

Criteria: Service in Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, or Thailand during the above period. Prior to issuance of this award in November 1965, the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal was given to those who served in Vietnam. After that period, it is the veteran’s choice to exchange the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal for the Vietnam Service Medal. It is the military’s policy that you cannot have two medals to recognize service in the same action. There were 17 campaigns during the Vietnam War.

Devices: All Services: Bronze, Silver star; Army: Bronze Arrowhead; Navy: Bronze Marine Corps device

Bronze and silver stars are authorized to signify participation in any of the 17 designated campaigns during the inclusive period.

The colors of the suspension drape and ribbon suggest the flag of the Republic of Vietnam (the red stripes represent the three ancient Vietnamese empires of Tonkin, Annam, and Cochin China) and the green represents the Vietnamese jungle.

The device, an integral part of the award, is a silver ribbon 28mm long on the suspension ribbon and 15mm long on the service bar inscribed, “1960-    ” and was evidently intended to include a terminal date for the hostilities.

Many examples of this medal are found with devices inscribed with other dates but the only version authorized for U.S. personnel is the one described herein.

River Division 514 was part of a larger group of “Brown Water Rats”; American forces that engaged the enemy upon the muddy inland waters, rivers and canals of The Republic Of Vietnam.

In 1960, Special Forces of the US Army & Navy began to train ARVN, Village Militia Forces and Indigenous Tribesmen in what was South Vietnam. Along the way they realized that protecting and controlling the massive river systems of South Vietnam was integral to the success of their mission: halting the communist North Vietnam and it’s Guerilla Forces –called the Viet Cong–  from seizing South Vietnam.

By 1964, the in-shore warfare role of the US Navy was expanded from engaging the enemy forces in Vietnam’s twisting inland waterways, to conducting a secret, deadly war with North Vietnamese forces on and above the Demilitarized Zone and in neighboring countries such as Cambodia and Laos. From their core duty of keeping the waterways free of the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong,  their mission expanded to special operations involving Seal, UDT  (under water demolition) and Helicopter Assault Teams.

Between 1960 and 1975, 116 members were killed or went missing in action. This included 5 Staff Officers, 2 Commanders, 40 Light Attack Helicopter Squadron members, 38 members of Seal teams 1 and 2, and 4 Underwater Demolition Team Members.
