CYCLONE SIDR RELIEF OPERATION IN BANGLADESH FOR THE PERIOD OF 18 NOV

NOTE:  ONLY THOSE MARINES WHO DIRECTLY PARTICIPATED IN THE IMMEDIATE
BANGLADESH CYCLONE SIDR RELIEF HUMANITARIAN OPERATION FOR THE PERIOD
OF 18 NOV 07 THROUGH 8 DEC 07 MAY BE ELIGIBLE.  AS STATED IN REF
(B), DIRECT PARTICIPATION IS DEFINED AS BEING PHYSICALLY PRESENT AT
THE DESIGNATED LOCATION AND HAVING DIRECTLY CONTRIBUTED TO AND
INFLUENCED THE ACTION.  DEPLOYMENT TO THE AREA OF HUMANITARIAN
ASSISTANCE IN AND OF ITSELF DOES NOT CONSTITUTE HSM ENTITLEMENT.  BY
NAME LIST OF ELIGIBLE PERSONNEL HAS BEEN REPORTED ON UD AT THIS HQ

WEBSITE WWW.MANPOWER.USMC.MIL/AWARDS, UNDER VERIFICATION OF AWARDS,
EXTERNAL LINKS TAB. 
4.  CLARIFICATION REGARDING THE ELIGIBILITY FOR NATO MEDALS
ANNOUNCED IN MARADMIN 418/08.  SINCE NATO IS THE ONLY OFFICIAL
AWARDING AUTHORITY FOR THE NATO MEDAL, MARINES MUST HAVE ALREADY
BEEN APPROVED BY SHAPE J-1 AND RECEIVED THE MEDAL/CERTIFICATE FROM
SHAPE J-1 BEFORE ANY MARINE IS AUTHORIZED TO WEAR THE MEDAL OR HAVE
IT REPORTED ON UD.  NO OTHER TYPE OF DOCUMENTATION IS ACCEPTABLE.
MARADMIN 418/08 JUST INFORMS MARINES WHICH OPERATIONS ARE ELIGIBLE
FOR THE NATO MEDAL.  WHEN MARINES MEET THE ELIGIBILITY FOR THE NATO
MEDAL, COMMANDS ARE STILL REQUIRED TO REQUEST APPROVAL FROM SHAPE
J-1 VIA THE OPERATIONAL CHAIN OF COMMAND, INCLUDING MARINE CORPS
FORCES EUROPE.  IF APPROVED, SHAPE J-1 WOULD PROVIDE THE MEDALS AND
CERTIFICATES FOR ELIGIBLE MARINES WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE RESPECTIVE
OPERATION.  UPON RECEIPT, THE MEDAL AND CERTIFICATE IS PRESENTED TO
THE MARINE, THE UD ENTRY IS REPORTED, AND A COPY OF THE CERTIFICATE
IS SUBMITTED TO MMSB FOR INCLUSION INTO THE MARINES OMPF.
5.  REF A WILL NO LONGER BE DISTRIBUTED.  INSTEAD, REF A IS UPDATED
QUARTERLY AND MAINTAINED ON THE INTERNET AT THE USMC.MIL WEBSITE.
