No, there is not a comprehensive list. It is the second highest non-combat award.
A 1/4" gold or silver star is the appropriate device to attach to the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal.
Various sources say it is a total of 22. The link has the citations of seven of the Corpsmen, four on Iwo Jima and three on Okinawa.

JFK received the Navy and Marine Corps Medal and the WWII Victory Medal.
JFK was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Medal and the WWII Victory Medal.
No, but he was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Medal and the Purple Heart.
He didn't. He was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Medal and the Purple Heart.
No, it was the Navy and Marine Corps Medal and the Purple Heart.
For saving the life of a shipmate after the sinking of the PT-109.
They are both VERY different. A Navy servicemen is in the Navy. A Marine is in the Marine Corps. The Marine Corps is just a department of the Navy.
There are approximately 50 Navy and Marine Corps officers (the Navy MOH is awarded to both Navy and Marines Corps members) who have been awarded the Navy MOH since 1861. The most recent Naval officer to receive the MOH was Navy SEAL Lieutenant Michael Murphy, who was killed in action during Operation Red Wings in Afghanistan.

If the medal is documented in your DD214, you may be entitled to wear it. You will have to consult the specific regulations. Most medals can be worn, but after the Marine medals.
The Marine Corps falls under the Dept. of the Navy and the Secretary of the Navy is Ray Mabus.
The US Navy and Marine Corps are both parts of the US Navy. Then there's shore establishments, HQ's and Operating units if I'm correct. If you want a more simple answer- The Navy, Navy Reserve, Marine Corps Reserve, and the Marine Corps.
Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society was created in 1904.
The Navy Expeditionary or Marine Corps Expeditionary Medal, The Humanitarian Medal (when I was there in 1982), we got a Navy Unit Commendation for saving the lives of the crew of a helocopter that crashed. We didn't get a CAR or an NDM
JFK biographies I've seen mention the Navy and Marine Corps Medal, but no PH
He was awarded the The Navy Marine Corps Medal. That was for the same actions that he got his Purple Heart for.
The Marine Corps is not senior to the Navy, nor is the Navy senior to the Marine Corps. The USMC is a branch of the US Military under the jurisdiction of the Navy. Basically, the Marines conduct landing operations on coastal areas, working WITH the Navy, who mainly stays on the ships and in the air. If however the question regards parade marching position, then yes, the Marine Corps does take precedence by tradition over… Read More
For the Marine Corps I believe it is 4 (one term). I'm not sure about the Navy.
The Marine Corps by Title X US Code is still a part of the Dept of the Navy.
The US Navy was created on October 13, 1775, and the Marine Corps was created on November 10, 1775.
I would argue by definition a Navy is amphibious but it is not the main part of the Navy that is. One of the prime missions of the Marine Corps is Amphibious operations and since the Marine Corps is part of the Navy the Navy as a whole is amphibious.
Technically, they never have. The Marine Corps is still a department of the Navy.
That the Marine Corps is subordinate to and part of the US Navy.
The Marine Corps are subordinate to the Department of the Navy.
No you cannot do that. The Navy SEALs is just that the NAVY. You would have to finish your enlistment in the Marine Corps and then join the Navy.
Officially, no. The Marine Corps does not have a medical unit itself. However, the Navy has Corpsmen, which are medical personnel, attached directly to Marine Corps units.
Absolutely not. The US Marine Corps is a separate service, that is a branch of the Department of the Navy.
The US Marine Corps is a branch of the US Military. It is a part of the Department of the Navy. The commandant serves on the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The Marine corps is a department of the Navy. They attend the US Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland. By the way, Marines like to say they are the "MENS" department of the US Navy.
No, there is not a Marine Corps Academy. Midshipmen at the US Naval Academy may elect to go to the Navy or the Marine Corps. They will receive a commission in the appropriate service upon graduation.
Commander is a rank exclusive to the Navy. It is the equivalent of an Army/Air Force/Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel (O5). A Navy Captain is equivalent to an Army/Air Force/Marine Corps Colonel (O6), whereas a Captain in the Army, Air Force, or Marine Corps is O3. A Navy Captain outranks a Commander, but a Commander outranks an Army, Air Force, or Marine Corps Captain.
Yes, they are two different armed forces. While the US Marine Corps is a part of the Department of the Navy, they are still separate. They cooperate very closely and the Navy provides the Marine Corps with Medical resources.
The anchor on the Marine Corps emblem (Eagle, Globe, and Anchor) is to denote their long standing connection to the U.S. Navy since the beginning of the Corps, and the fact that the Marine Corps falls under the Department of the Navy.

Though the Marine Corps currently has its own Expeditionary Medal, after the current supply is exhausted, the NEM will be used for both Navy and Marine Corps personnel. Being awarded the NEM has a relatively nice bonus… Read More
Why was John F. Kennedy awarded the navy and marine corps medal and a citation for extreamly heroic conduct?
JFK served in the US Navy during WWII, 1941-1945, commanding a PT Boat in the Solomons. He was awarded the medal for saving the lives of his fellow crewmates after contact with Japanese forces.
Yes, the President is the Commander in Chief of all the armed services. The Marine Corps is part of the Navy Dept.
No, There is a Combat Action RIBBON though. The Combat Action Ribbon (CAR) is a personal military decoration of the United States Navy, United States Marine Corps, and United States Coast Guard which is awarded to those who, in any grade including and below that of a Captain in the Navy and Coast Guard (or Colonel in the Marine Corps), have actively participated in ground or surface combat.
Two separate US Military Forces are under the direction of the Secretary of the Navy, the US Navy and the US Marine Corps under the most recent National Security Act of 1947.
The Army has the most, they have 2355(1198 Awarded during civil war). Then the Navy with 745. Then the Marines with 296. Then the Army Air Corps with 42. Then the Air Force with 17 and then the Coast Guard with 1.
The maroon ribbon is the Navy Good Conduct Medal; the ribbon is worn in place of the medal when full formal dress requiring medals/ribbons aren't required. The Secretary of the Navy recently authorized the merging of the Marine Corps Good Conduct with the Navy's - the Navy Good Conduct will be authorized for wear by both Sailors and Marines.
The Marine Corps has always been under the Department of the Navy, from its beginning until today. The Navy and Marine Corps are 2 separate entities within the Department of the Navy, and each have their own senior Commander who oversees each branch. For the Navy, it's the Chief of Naval Operations, the Marines it's the Commandant of the Marine Corps. Both officers report directly to the Secretary of the Navy, who in turn reports… Read More

O3 in the Army, Marine Corps, and Air Force; O6 is the Navy and Coast Guard (a Navy and Coast Guard Captain is equivalent to an Army/Marine Corps/Air Force Colonel).
They are two separate Armed Forces within the Department of the Navy and under the direction of the Secretary of the Navy. The Marine Corps is not however a separate command under the control of the United States Navy or the Chief of Naval Operations but is commanded by the Commandant of the Marine Corps.
It's difficult to answer this even if one had a list or recipients (which one could possibly obtain from the Navy and/or Marine Corps), because, although Pres. Roosevelt first authorised the award of the Purple Heart to sailors and marines wounded or killed on or after December 6, 1941, Pres. Truman extended the period back to April 5, 1917, so it might be said that a sailor or marine who earned the medal in World… Read More
