Die National Defense Service Medal ist eine militärische Auszeichnung der US-Streitkräfte, die auf Anweisung von Präsident Dwight D. Eisenhower am 22. April 1953 eingeführt wurde und an Personen verliehen wird, die im Koreakrieg, im Vietnamkrieg, im Zweiten Golfkrieg oder im Krieg gegen den Terror im aktiven Dienst beteiligt waren. Mehrfachauszeichnungen werden mit einem Servicestern gekennzeichnet.

The National Defense Service Medal (NDSM) is awarded to anyone who serves on active duty in the United States military during the above time periods.[3] Reserve Component service during the Korean and Vietnam periods, other than those Reserve Component personnel in a full-time status or on active duty greater than 89 days, did not qualify for award of the NDSM. For service in the Gulf War, members of the Reserve Component (in good standing), to include the National Guard, were initially awarded the NDSM when called to active duty service, but this was later expanded to include all members of the Reserve or National Guard in good standing on the Reserve Active Status List (or equivalent) during the eligibility period.[4] For service in the War on Terrorism, Selected Reserve and National Guard members need only to have been in good standing to receive the NDSM and no active duty service is required.[5] Inactive Ready Reserve and Retired Reserve are not eligible to be awarded the NDSM unless called to active duty. The medal is authorized to Cadets and Midshipmen at the service academies after they are sworn into service, as well as pre-commission officer candidates/trainees at the Officer Candidate Schools or Officer Training Schools of the various U.S. services; but is not granted to discharged or retired military personnel who did not serve in one of the above time periods; nor is it authorized for Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) Cadets and Midshipmen at colleges and universities who enlisted in the inactive reserve (i.e., Obligated Reserve Section or ORS) during qualifying periods. The NDSM ranks eleventh out of twenty-nine in the order of precedence of service medals. There is no time requirement for the medal's issuance, meaning that someone who joins the military for simply a few days, and then receives an entry level discharge, would technically be entitled to the NDSM; in practice, however, military clerks will not add the NDSM on a DD Form 214 if the service member performed duty for less than 90 days from the completion of their initial entry training. This accounts for the medal's omission from a large number of "uncharacterized" and "entry level" separation documents. Veterans who have this medal so omitted may apply to the military service departments to have the NDSM added to records via a DD Form 215
