1. The Chief of Naval Operations Awards Board, after reviewing the documents submitted by reference (a), has approved the Combat Action Ribbon for 1 June 1972.
2. I have informed the Navy Liaison Office, National Personnel Records Center, and BUPERS so when other members write, there shouldn't be any problems. If you know the whereabouts of other crewmembers, they can use a copy of this letter as proof of the award.
