The Navy Expeditionary award was first created in August 1936 by General Orders of the Department of the Navy and is retroactively authorized to February 12, 1874. 
It is awarded to Navy personnel who have operated in foreign territory to engage in operations, both combat and non-combat, for which no other campaign medal has been awarded.
The medal is one of the few Navy awards which is not awarded to the United States Marine Corps, as Marine Corps personnel are eligible for the Marine Corps Expeditionary Medal.
In addition, since 1961, some Navy commands permit service members to choose between the Navy Expeditionary Medal and the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal for participation in certain operations
