(1) Veracruz Expedition: April 24 to November 26, 1914;
(2) Punitive Expedition into Mexico: March 14, 1916 to February 7, 1917;

The United States Navy issued the Mexican Service Medal to members of the Navy and Marine Corps who participated in any of the above actions, as well
as to service members who served aboard U.S. naval vessels, patrolling
Mexican waters, between April 21, 1914, and November 26, 1914, or
between March 14, 1916 and February 7, 1917. The Mexican Service Medal
was also awarded to any service member who was killed or wounded while participating in action against hostile Mexican forces between April 12, 1911
and February 7, 1917. Although a single decoration, both the Army and Navy issued two different versions of the Mexican Service Medal. The Army
Mexican Service Medal displayed an engraving of a yucca plant, while the
Navy version depicted a waterfront fortress. Both medals displayed the
annotation "1911 - 1917" at the bottom of the medal. The medals now
appear identical on the front side with the reverse side of the award annotating
a specific reference to either the Army, Navy, or Marine Corps (depending on
the service member's branch). For those Army members who had been cited
for gallantry in combat, the Citation Star was authorized as a device to the Mexican Service Medal. There were no devices authorized for the Navy's
version of the decoration. A similar decoration, known as the Mexican Border Service Medal also exists for those having performed support duty to Mexican combat expeditions from within the United States. The Mexican Service
Medal is an award of the United States military, established by a General
Order of the United States War Department on December 12, 1917.
