The Combat Action Ribbon (CAR) is a personal decoration of the United States Department of the Navy and U.S. Coast Guard that may be awarded to those
who, in any grade including and below that of a Captain in the U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard (or Colonel in the U.S. Marine Corps), have actively participated in ground or surface combat.

he Coast Guard version of the Combat Action Ribbon was created on July
16, 2008. The criterion for the Combat Action Ribbon is satisfactory
performance under enemy fire while actively participating in a ground or
maritime engagement.

Criteria also include personnel with direct exposure to the detonation of an improvised explosive device used by an enemy, and for personnel who serve
in clandestine/special operations, who are restricted in their ability to return
fire, where the risk of enemy fire was great. Initially, all other similar awards
from other military services were required to be converted to the Coast Guard Combat Action Ribbon in order to be worn on the Coast Guard uniform, but
the policy was modified to allow wear of the Navy/Marine Corps Combat
Action Ribbon
