Coast Guard Bicentennial Unit Ribbon

Categories: , , ,

Established by Commandant of the Coast Guard Admiral Paul A. Yost, Jr. on 2 January 2 1990.[1] The award was issued as a one-time award only that commemorated the founding of the U.S. Coast Guard in 1790, then known as the Revenue Cutter Service. The Coast Guard Bicentennial Unit Commendation was discontinued for issuance in September 1991, but Coast Guard regulations permit the continued wearing of the decoration on the uniforms of Coast Guard members who have earned it.
