First Nicaraguan Campaign Medal - Marine Corps

Criteria: Awarded to U.S. Navy and Marine Corps personnel having
participated in amphibious actions in Nicaragua between July 29 and
November 14, 1912. The following naval commands, and all embarked
United States Marines, were eligible for the First Nicaraguan Campaign
Medal: USS Annapolis (gunboat); USS California (cruiser); USS Cleveland (cruiser); USS Colorado (cruiser); USS Denver (cruiser); USS Glacier
(supply ship); USS Maryland (armored cruiser); USS Tacoma (cruiser);
The medal for the First Nicaraguan Campaign Medal displayed a volcano,
rising from a lake, with the words “Nicaraguan Campaign” and the date
1912 on the edges of the medal. The medal, itself, was suspended from a red ribbon with two thick blue stripes. On the reverse of each medal was a Navy
or Marine Corps crest, depending on which branch of service the recipient
was a member. The First Nicaraguan Campaign Medal was a one time only decoration and there were no devices or attachments authorized. The
Nicaraguan Campaign Medal is was authorized by Presidential Order of Woodrow Wilson on September 22, 1913. The medal was again authorized
by an act of the United States Congress on November 8, 1929. The
Nicaraguan Campaign Medal is therefore considered as two separate
decorations, commonly referred to as the First Nicaraguan Campaign Medal
and the Second Nicaraguan Campaign Medal.
