Question about Navy and Marine Corps Medal Official Engraving

Recommended Posts

Hello to everyone!

I hope you are all doing well, I've been hit and miss here lately, but do sneak in for a grateful peek at the wonderful posts!


This question has probably been asked before but I was wondering about the time frame on OFFICIAL engraving (posthumous) of the Navy and Marine Corps Medal. Were they issued through the end of the war engraved or were they typical of only earlier awards?


I've only seen the single example in "The Call of Duty", so if some kind member could share the time frame info and even some pics I (and probably other members) would love to see them.


Thank you all for making this such a great place.


Best wishes!

Here is one I saw a few years back that was in official format. It looks just like posthumous Air Medal engraving.

Awarded for actions during the World War II



The President of the United States of America takes pride in presenting the Navy and Marine Corps Medal (Posthumously) to Lieutenant Newell P. Wyman, United States Naval Reserve, for heroic conduct adrift with his crew in the northwest Pacific after his plane crashed on 13 April 1944. Lieutenant Wyman sighted a plane about to land nearby. Realizing that it probably would be wrecked in the high seas, he warned the plane by wave-off signals not to attempt a rescue. He voluntarily relinquished his chance for immediate safety and perished later from exposure before the raft was recovered by surface vessels.

General Orders: Bureau of Naval Personnel Information Bulletin No. 330 (September 1944)
