Navy "E" Ribbon
The Navy "E" Ribbon was established in July of 1976 by Secretary of the Navy William Middendorf. The Navy "E" Ribbon denotes permanent duty on U.S. Navy ships or in squadrons that have won a battle efficiency competition (often referred to as the "Battle E") after July 1, 1974. This ribbon replaces the "E" patch previously sewn on the right sleeve of the uniform.
For each award of the Navy "E" Ribbon, one Battle E device is authorized for wear on the Navy "E" ribbon, up to the third award. For the fourth and all subsequent awards, the E with wreath device is worn, with no further devices added to the ribbon. The ribbon, itself, is also commonly referred to as the "Battle E".
This Navy "E" Service Ribbon is manufactured by the same government contractor that supplies the U.S. Army and Army Post Exchanges, it's quality is guaranteed.
