Fighter-Bomber Campaign
This award signifies that this individual completed the Fighter-Bomber Campaign

Operational Overview
PREAMBLE (straight from wikipedia)
A fighter-bomber is a fighter aircraft that is modified or used primarily as a light bomber in the tactical bombing and ground attack roles. It differs from attack aircraft primarily in its origins; attack aircraft are developed for the attack role first and any fighter capability is entirely secondary, whereas fighter-bombers are designed as fighters and then adapted to other roles.[1] This term, although still used, has less significance since the introduction of rockets and guided missiles into aerial warfare. Nowadays, aircraft that carry similar duties are typically called multirole fighters or, sometimes, strike fighters.

AS PER ANDREW EGAN:
Fighter Bombers are a compromise, really we are talking aircraft designed as fighters that can drop bombs, otherwise it is any aircraft with all its armament firing forward that can both drop bombs and dogfight, (however badly it does either).
