    Actually, the medal could have been issued at any time in the past 70 years. The US Army Good Conduct Medal was created by executive Order 8809 on 28 June 1941 and is currently awarded to any active duty enlisted member of the United States military who completes three consecutive years of "honorable and faithful service", It is awarded if the standard, 3-year enlistment is completed without non-judicial punishment, disciplinary infractions, or court martial offenses. If an enlisted solider commits an offense, the three-year mark "resets" and he, or now she, must perform an additional three years of service without having to be disciplined, before the Good Conduct may be authorized. Each service has its own version of the medal, Air Force, Marines, Navy, and Coast Guard. So, that medal is probably not from WW2, but that doesn’t matter, because there is absolutely no difference between one made during WW2 or at any time up to now. Dwight

    I will respectfully disagree with drmessimer on the ability to tell a WWII conduct medal from one issued recently. It is my understanding the attachment of the ribbon to the backing with a stitch on each side differentiates. They were not constructed like this post WW2. I am always happy to be corrected as I am here to learn.

    This one is a post war medal.

    actually there is a difference in the clasps which can narrow down the mfg timeframe, according to the following link which I found useful while trying to date an Air Medal.....lots of useful information here
