Recently sent in a DD 149 to update my DD 214 to include awards not received during my enlistment.

The result was I received two ribbons from RVN; Meritorious Unit Citation and Gallantry Cross.

However, I was denied Sea Service Deployment / Overseas Service Ribbons.

The USCG said that those " awards were not in service for authorization intil AUG 15, 1974  and are only retroactive to that date ... records show you were discharged JUL 13, 1973"  (true).

Have any other crew members from RVN Tour been denied or received the ribbons?  Please respond.

Thank you,
