The Haitian Campaign Medal, 1919-1920

To commemorate the services performed by the personnel of the navy and Marine Corps during the operations in Haiti, a campaign medal, to be known as the "Haitian Campaign Medal, 1919-20," (medal at far right) will be issued to the officers and men who participated in those operations. The period for which this medal will be issued is from 1 April 1919 to 15 June 1920, and any officer or enlisted man of the Navy or Marine Corps who served in Haiti during this period, or part of such period, is entitled to this medal, as are the officers and enlisted men who were attached to the vessels mentioned in the following list between the dates below each vessel (Navy Department General Order No. 77 of 29 December 1921):

[Historical note: Personnel who qualified for the original Haitian Campaign Medal (1915) and subsequently qualified for the Haitian Campaign Medal, 1919-20 were not issued the more recent medal. Instead, they received a clasp emblazoned with the dates "1919-1920" for wear on the ribbon of their 1915 medal.]
