I think it would be a medal given to those who served in a campaign or expeditionary exercise that is not declared a war. Some examples may be Panama, Granada, Kosovo, just to name a couple.

I read somewhere that the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, or a caimpaign medal are interchangable; both would count as a 'campaign badge' on most state and federal dealings.

So, you are checking yes, yes?
