Miniature Medal, Non-Anodized, Iraq Campaign MedalThe Iraq Campaign Medal was awarded to any member of the U.S. military who performed duty within the borders of Iraq (or its territorial waters) for a period of thirty consecutive days or sixty non-consecutive days. The medal was awarded retroactively from 19 March 2003 until the end of Operation New Dawn on 31 December 2011. Personnel who engaged in combat with an enemy force, or personnel wounded in combat or wounded as a result of a terrorist attack within Iraq received the Iraq Campaign Medal regardless of the number of days spent within the country. In addition, each day participating in aerial missions as a "regularly assigned air crewmember of an aircraft flying sorties into, out of, within or over Iraq and in direct support of the military operations" established a single day of eligibility. When the required minimum days of eligibility were accrued, the medal was then awarded. The medal was also awarded posthumously to any service member who died in the line of duty within Iraq, including from non-combat injuries such as accidents and mishaps. On 23 April 2012, an order terminating the award of the Iraq Campaign Medal was issued by the Department of Defense. The order is effective to 31 December 2011, the day Operation New Dawn ended. U.S. military personnel serving inside the borders of Iraq after December 2011 will not be eligible to receive the ICM.Phase 1: Liberation of Iraq March 19, 2003 - May 1, 2003 Phase 2: Transition of Iraq May 2, 2003 - June 28, 2004 Phase 3: Iraqi Governance June 29, 2004 - December 15, 2005 Phase 4: National Resolution December 16, 2005 - January 9, 2007 Phase 5: Iraqi Surge January 10, 2007 - December 31, 2008 Phase 6: Iraqi Sovereignty January 1, 2009 - August 31, 2010 Phase 7: Operation New Dawn September 1, 2010 - December 15, 2011
