    Just to make sure...that ended in something like 2005 yes? So for those Soldiers who are returning on their first deployment, they DO NOT receive this?

    They just released two new periods for them as well.

    The Surge is now a period, and the iraqi independence (now) is a new one as well.

    Bronze campaign stars recognizing the 2007-08 surge of U.S. troops into Iraq, as well as current stabilization efforts, have been authorized for wear on the Iraq Campaign Medal, the Pentagon announced Thursday.
    The surge campaign phase has been established as running from Jan. 1, 2007, to Dec. 31, 2008; the second campaign star, for the phase identified as “Iraqi Sovereignty,” began Jan. 1, 2009, and will continue through a date to be determined.
    Although all who have served in “direct support” in the Iraq war on or after March 13, 2003, are authorized to wear the medal, the stars recognize designated campaigns during the war.
    Four previous phases had been identified, and service members who have qualified for the Iraq Campaign Medal can display a bronze campaign star on their medal for each designated campaign phase in which they took part.


    • Liberation of Iraq — March 19, 2003, to May 1, 2003.
    • Transition of Iraq — May 2, 2003, to June 28, 2004.
    • Iraqi Governance — June 29, 2004, to Dec. 15, 2005.·
    • The “National Resolution” phase — Dec. 16, 2005, to Jan. 9, 2007.
    • The Surge phase — Jan. 1, 2007, to Dec. 31, 2008
    • Iraqi Sovereignty — Jan. 1, 2009, to be determined


    Troops should contact their respective military departments for specific implementation guidance, the Pentagon said.

    No, you'd be eligible for two periods which means the ribbon for original period and one star for second period. Two stars would be three periods.

    You are authorized stars for each period. The ribbon does not count as as one period. If you were there for two periods you would get the ribbon and two stars.

    I'm pretty sure it's one star per campaign, meaning he gets two.

    eg. I was only in one campaign, but I have a campaign star on my ERB.

    Guess you're right. Awesome they go against every other award in the military and make the rules different with it. Service stars are always only used to show multiple awards of the same ribbon.

    Busy. I thought my 12 hour days would end once I got back from deployment. I was wrong. I did finally ditch my Lt bars and upgraded to a set of railroad tracks. I can talk to most SNCOs and FGOs without them immediately thinking I'm a moron. How about you, and the rest of teh baracks?
