The United States Navy Good Conduct Medal was authorized on November 21, 1884. The medal is awarded to enlisted personnel of the United States Navy and Naval Reserve (active duty) for creditable, above average professional performance, military behavior, leadership, military appearance and adaptability based on good conduct and faithful service for three-year periods of continuous active service. It is constructed out of a die stamped bronze base. The round shaped obverse features the U.S.S. Constitution above “Constitution” encircled by a rope that is tied together at the bottom, that is all in front of an anchor that has “Navy” to the bottom and is flanked by “United States” and is all again encircled by a chain. The reverse has the raised inscription, “Fidelity – Zeal – Obedience” around the border with space provided in the center to stamp the recipient’s name. To the top is a ball hinge and ring that holds a maroon ribbon with a brass plate and pin assembly to the back.
