The Vietnam Campaign Medal is issued with a device known as the "1960 Bar". The bar displays the date of 1960 followed by a dash and a blank space. The unusual appearance was caused by the government of South Vietnam stating that the 1960 bar would show the dates of the Vietnam War from start to finish, with the ending date placed on the 1960 bar after the South Vietnamese had triumphed over North Vietnam. Since South Vietnam fell, and the government ceased to exist, an ending date for the 1960 Bar was never established.

The United States military currently issues the Vietnam Campaign Medal, for veterans of the Vietnam war, but only provides a ribbon with 1960 bar. The actual medal is no longer issued except by private dealers in military insignia. The Vietnam Campaign Medal is considered a foreign award by the U.S.
