This emblem was awarded to members of the Armed Forces of the United States for services culminating in the liberation of the Philippine Islands during the Second World War.

The ribbon is slightly larger for the Army and worn on the right breast; for the other services, the ribbon is the standard size.
The citation was first awarded to units of the Armed Forces of the United States in recognition of participation in the war against the Japanese Empire during the periods 7 December 1941 and 10 May 1942, inclusive, and 17 October 1944 to 4 July 1945, inclusive.
