Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal    During the early years of the Vietnam War, the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal was issued for initial operations in South Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. In 1965, with the creation of the Vietnam Service Medal, the AFEM was discontinued for Vietnam War service. As the Vietnam Service Medal was retroactively authorized, those personnel who had previously received the AFEM were granted the option to exchange the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal for the Vietnam Service Medal.

The castle is the symbol used by the military engineers of the United States. The use of this symbol goes back to the Army Corps of Engineers who built forts in the early years of our country. Almost all military engineer unit logos include the use of a castle.
