Other Important Information Concerning Good Conduct Medals
SERVICE ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS After 1 November 1963, any 4 years of  continuous active service as an enlisted person in the Regular Navy or Naval Reserve is a requirement for the issuance of a Good  Conduct  Medal.  For  a  first  enlistment,  this requirement  could  have  been  fulfilled  or  may  be fulfilled  as  follows: l   Continuous   active   service   during   minority enlistment provided the member served on active duty to the day preceding his or her 21st birthday even though the  member  extended  his  or  her  enlistment  and  remained on  active  duty .  Continuous  active  service  during  a  minority enlistment provided the member served on active duty within 3 months of the day preceding his or her 21st birthday .   Continuous   active   service   during   a   first enlistment for 4 years from which the member has been discharged or released to inactive duty within 3 months of  the  date  of  expiration  of  enlistment.  (This  does  not apply to those members who are discharged for the purpose  of  immediate  reenlistment  or  have  an inoperative   extension.) To illustrate the eligibility for the issuance of a Good Conduct Medal for an individual who remains on active duty, let’s look at the case of a member who joined the Navy on 20 March 1993 for 4 years and has a 12-month inoperative  extension.   Provided  all  eligibility  criteria are  met,  this  member  will  be  eligible  for  the  Good Conduct Medal on 19 March 1997, which is basically this member’s EAOS. This member will continue to receive the award on the same day for the rest of his or her naval career provided he or she is eligible. NOTE:  The  minority  enlistment  program,  as mentioned previously, was terminated on 12 March 1969. CONDUCT  ELIGIBILITY  REQUIREMENTS Within the required period of active service, individual must have a clear record. This means the the member must have no convictions by court-martial, no nonjudicial  punishments,  no  sick  misconduct,  and  no civil  convictions  for  offenses  involving  moral  turpitude. If a member is confined as a result of conviction by a general, special, or summary court-martial, a new 4-year period must begin with the date of restoration to duty on a probationary basis. If confinement is not included in an approved sentence of the court-martial, a 5-62 new 4-year period must begin with the date of convening authority action. If   the   member’s   service   record   contains   a nonjudicial punishment, a new 4-year period must begin with  the  next  date  following  the  date  of  the  offense. If the member is convicted by civil authorities for an offense involving moral turpitude, a new 4-year period must begin with the date of the member’s return to active duty status. If the record contains a disqualifying mark that is not the result of a nonjudicial punishment, the new 4-year period must begin with the next date following the date of the mark. In  the  following  paragraphs,  you  will  learn  about other criteria that will help you to determine the issuance date for the Good Conduct Medal. PERFORMANCE  MARKS  REQUIRED DURING PERIOD OF ELIGIBILITY After 31 August 1983, a member may not have a mark below 3.0 in Military Knowledge/Performance, Rating   Knowledge/Performance,   Reliability,   Military Bearing, Personal Behavior and Directing. A mark below 3.0 makes the member ineligible to receive a Good  Conduct  Medal. If you should be responsible for determining the eligibility requirement for issuance of a Good Conduct Medal for personnel who have served before to 31 August  1983,  use  the  following  information  as  a guideline: Personnel in paygrades E-4 and below may not have a mark below 3.0 in any trait. Personnel in paygrades E-5 and E-6 may not have a  mark  below  EEL  (typically  effective—lower) in  directing,  individual  productivity,  reliability, or conduct. Personnel  in  paygrades  E-7,  E-8,  and  E-9  may not have a mark below the bottom 50 percent in performance,  reliability,  conduct,  or  directing. Let’s look at another case in which eligibility for a Good Conduct Medal must be determined. Let’s say an individual  joined  the  Navy  after  August  1983. Specifically, let’s say this person joined the Navy on 10 January 1992 for 4 years and has a 24-month inoperative extension. Let’s also say this individual receives a performance evaluation mark of 2.0 in Military Bearing on 30 June 1993. For this member, the new period of
