Coast Guardsmen awarded Navy Combat Action Ribbon
from The Virginian-Pilot
Twelve Coast Guardsmen who served on the Navy guided missile destroyer Mason when it came under attack off the coast of Yemen last year have been awarded the Navy Combat Action Ribbon, according to a news release. This is the first time in more than 25 years that the Navy has recognized a Coast Guard crew at sea for coming under enemy fire. The Coast Guardsmen are assigned to a Maritime Security Response Team in Chesapeake.
