Spanish War Service Medal

Criteria: Awarded to U.S. Army personnel having served on active duty in the
United States Army between the dates of April 20, 1898 and April 11, 1899.
Those who were awarded the Spanish Campaign Medal were ineligible to receive
the Spanish War Service Medal. The decoration recognizes those members of the
Army who performed active duty during the Spanish-American War, but did not
qualify for the Spanish Campaign Medal. The primary purpose for the creation of
the Spanish War Service Medal was to recognize units of the Army which had performed homeland defense in the United States during the years of the Spanish-American War. The award was also presented extensively to members of the
United States National Guard who had been federalized for active military duty
but had not been deployed to actual combat in the Spanish-American War. The
Spanish War Service Medal was a one time decoration and there were no devices authorized to the medal. The award was also strictly for Army personnel, since
United States Navy and Marine Corps personnel, who had served in the Spanish-American War, qualified for the Spanish Campaign Medal regardless if overseas
duty was performed. The first recipient of the Spanish War Service Medal was
Major General Charles Clement who had served as the commander of U.S. forces
in the United States during the Spanish-American War. The medal, itself, was
similar in design to the Mexican Border Service Medal which had been established
the same year as the Spanish War Service Medal. The award was established by
an act of the U.S. Congress on July 9, 1918.
