    you need 30 days on active duty in the fleet... sorry reserves don't count, nor does your training.

    Correct. You need the 30 days either in the Fleet or on some other mission, other than reserves.

    Well, since 50% or so of the total Force in the sandbox and Afghan is Reserves or Guards, what you got to say about that?

    yeah all of our boots have it

    if they are wearing it before the 30 days, it's probably because they were informed of the wrong verbage... it happens, I've done stuff like that personally.... I feel dumb when it happens.

    There are a couple of Sergeants in my unit and we are reserves and they were wearing it at the ball, and I know they haven't been active duty, what gives?

    were they activated at all?

    if they were mobilized I'm sure they'll rate that.

    For reserves it's basically, if you've either been activated for a support mission relating to GWOT, (Operation Noble Eagle, for example) OR, your unit decides that you have contributed to GWOT enough to rate the medal.

    As stated by someone else before, go to this site to check to see if you are eligible:

    I do know that if those Sgts went to a MOS school or advanced course rather... that they'd have been augmented to active duty... and I think that might qualify them... but ADOS does not count as orders in support of the GWOT.

    they could have done a work-up on ADOS and somehow fought for it....

    I got out in 2003, didn't receive my GWOTSM until 2007. There may be some that consider this an insignifigant medal. In my eyes im damn proud to have it, along with my NDSM. The sad thing is I never got the chance to wear it on my uniform. Semper Fi

    I know I'm a bit out of place in this topic, but would 0352 qualify for this?

    After reading the second page, I see it says some reserve units get it and some don't. What would be the actual qualifications to say they did "enough"?
