Table of Contents

Sea Service Medals is the first and only complete historical examination of all the personal awards, decorations and medals that may be awarded to Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard personnel for heroism, achievement and service. As a comprehensive history of all awards and decorations of the United States' three sea services, this book serves as a valuable guide to the rich traditions of the Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. It provides little-known historical information on the background and development of each award and decoration, along with details of its design and award criteria.

The authors, both of whom retired from the Armed Forces, are experts in the history of U.S. awards and decorations. The decorations examined include well-known awards for combat heroism such as the Navy Medal of Honor, the Navy Cross, and the Silver Star. Non-combat heroism awards such as the Navy and Marine Corps Medal and Coast Guard Medal are also discussed. All decorations and medals for achievement and service are examined, ranging from the Navy and Coast Guard Distinguished Service Medals, the Legion of Merit, and the Meritorious Service Medal to the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, Coast Guard Achievement Medal, and Combat Action Ribbon. Fifty full color photographs of sea service awards, including illustrations of never-before-published rare Navy Medals of Honor, provide context for this unique history.
