I had a soldier ask me this question. They were “deployed” to Guantanamo Bay in 2016. I am not sure of the answer. I’ve tried looking up the regs, but it is very unclear on if this counts.

No, but they do receive the Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal and Overseas Service Ribbon. It's not a combat zone so no bars.

Overseas Service Bars are reserved for those serving in a combat zone. Gitmo is not a combat zone. They should rate the Overseas Service Ribbon.
