  Good Conduct and Reserve Medals
American good conduct medals started out as a simple piece of paper: a Navy discharge document given to a sailor by his captain upon the expiration of his enlistment.
American sailors were issued one such medal for each discharge with good conduct, and the medal (along with the sailor's discharge papers) had to be shown to the recruiting officer to prove the quality of his previous enlistment, obtain any re-enlistment bonus, and to receive credit for continuous service.
These medals are important for another reason: Reservists do not generally have the opportunity to earn the medals awarded to their active duty counterparts, and it is possible to serve for many years in a reserve program without recognition in the form of a medal.

 Reserve Good Conduct Medal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
