The Navy & Marine Corps Achievement Medal (NAM) is a decoration presented by the United States Department of the Navy to service members of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps who have performed commendably in routine duties or exceptional achievements, that have not been recognized by a higher award. It was originally created to honor junior members who are not generally eligible for the Navy & Marine Corps Commendation Medal or the Meritorious Service Medal. Subsequent awards are denoted by silver and gold stars worn on the ribbon.
