The Combat Action Ribbon (CAR), is a United States Navy, United States Marine Corps and United States Coast Guard military decoration. The Navy CAR was authorized on 17 February 1969 and may be awarded to members of the Navy and Marine Corps in the grade of USN/USCG captain and below and USMC colonel and below, "...who have actively participated in ground or surface combat."
