WWII USMC Good Conduct Medal New Regulations 1946
From the Jan 46 USMC Headquarter Bulletin. I know roughly the qualification of being awarded a USMC GCM changed in 1946. Here are those changes. Previously it was four years upon reenlistment. Seems like many WWII Marine missed both windows resulting in so few GCM being awarded. This is the first time I've seen these details published.
