The Dominican Campaign Medal is a military decoration of the United States Navy which was created on December 29, 1921. The medal recognizes service performed by the Navy, and the United States Marine Corps, in the Dominican Republic in the year 1916.

To be awarded the Dominican Campaign Medal, a service medal must have performed active military duty in The Dominican Republic between the dates of May 5 and December 4, 1916. The medal was also presented to the crews of certain naval vessels which provided sea support to landing forces.

The Dominican Campaign Medal commemorates the bravery of the United States Marine Corps who, with the assistance of the Navy, landed in the Dominican Republic to protect American and Haitian diplomatic personnel upon the outbreak of political unrest between violent factions. The medal was a one time only decoration and there were no devices or upgrades authorized.
