First Haitian Campaign Medal - Marine Corps
The First Haitian Campaign Medal is a decoration presented by the U.S. Navy to recognize members of the Navy and Marine Corps who participated in naval peacekeeping operations in Haiti between the dates of July 9, - December 6, 1915 while serving for the United States fleet of Rear Admiral William B. Caperton. This medal should be distinguished from the Second Haitian Campaign Medal, which was awarded to Navy and Marine Corps members who served in Haiti between April 1, 1919 - June 15, 1920. For those that served during both time periods, a campaign clasp and a Service Star are worn on the First Haitian Campaign Medal. Both medals are not authorized to be worn at the same time.
