The Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal also known as the Vietnam Campaign Medal (Vietnamese: Chiến Dịch Bội Tinh) is a military campaign medal that was awarded by the former South Vietnamese government. Established in 1964, it was awarded to members of the Republic of Vietnam Military Forces for direct participation in major military operations, and to foreign military personnel for service in South Vietnam.

The medal was awarded for two different periods of service. The first period was from March 8, 1949 to July 20, 1954. The second period was from January 1, 1960 to the end of the war (the date was to be given when the war ended); the war ended with the Fall of Saigon on April 30, 1975.
