The Navy Unit Commendation is awarded by the Navy Secretary to any ship; aircraft wing, group, squadron, detachment or crew; or other unit of the United States Navy or Marine Corps which has distinguished itself in action against the enemy with outstanding heroism but not sufficient to justify award of the U.S. Presidential Unit Citation.
To be eligible for the award, the unit must have performed service comparable to that which would merit the award of a Silver Star Medal in combat, or achievement of like caliber in a combat situation, to an individual. It is also awarded for combat service, in support of military operations, which was outstanding when compared to other units or organizations performing similar service.
Pricing includes mounting.
