Is this medal presented to soldiers who have been on rotation in Kuwait?

Look at HRC for this answer.
This is an award where the S1 has to dig into your records as well as the regulation, not just take the first thing offered in AR 600-8-22, Para 2-20 which supports awarding or not awarding the medal. I see this all the time. Everything in that must be taken into the correct analytical framework with the proper intent applied. Any questions or clarifications can be answered by HRC (I leverage the HRC Enlisted branch, but HRC will direct the question to the right area).
