Except each period required 6 months of service and he spent most of his time on the Gridley off the coast of California & traveling to Australia and then left SwiftBoats after 4 months.
There is no 6-month requirement for campaign stars on the Vietnam Service Medal. One day in-theater during a campaign period qualifies you to wear a star for that campaign.
