2.e. Inherent Resolve Campaign Medal (IRCM)
2.e.1. ALNAV 029/16 has been cancelled and replaced with ALNAV 064/17. This ALNAV announced a change to the criteria for the IRCM from 30 consecutive or 60 non-consecutive days within the Area of Eligibility (AOE) to 30 days, either consecutive or non-consecutive. The new criteria is retroactive to 15 June 2014. ALNAV 064/17 recapitulates the IRCM criteria incorporating the changes. Also, note amplification on the requirement for meeting the criteria under paragraph 2.b(3)(a).
2.e.2. Although the campaign streamer for Operation Inherent Resolve has been approved, the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) has not finalized the process for stocking the streamer. Therefore it is not available for purchase.
3. Ref (a) is no longer distributed. Instead, ref (a) is updated quarterly and maintained on the internet at www.marines.mil.
