Service is recognised between the dates 29 May 1964 and 27 January 1973. It has also now been adopted by New Zealand as their Vietnam service medal. Qualifying service includes:

Anniversary of National Service 1951-1972 Medal ANSM-C

The Anniversary of National Service 1951-1972 Medal recognises those who gave service under the National Service Act 1951, which was in force between 1951 and 1972. To be eligible for the medal, persons must have met their obligation to serve under the National Service Act 1951 and must not have been discharged for disciplinary reasons. Those who gave other service in discharge of the obligation to serve under that Act may also be eligible.

The ANSM was introduced in 2001 to recognise those who completed their obligation under the two National Service schemes that had operated in Australia between 1951 and 1972.

Eligibility for the medal is dependent upon a person's obligation to serve and upon this obligation being fulfilled under the National Service Act 1951 (As Amended), as it applied to the individual at the time of his service. Additionally, he must not have been discharged for disciplinary reasons. No women were conscripted under the National Service Act.
