Meritorious Team Commendation service ribbon for three awards, at least one of which for operational service.

The Meritorious Team Commendation (MTC) is a unit award of the United States Coast Guard. Created on 22 December 1993, the Meritorious Team Commendation is awarded for performance of exceptional actions that would normally warrant a Commandant's Letter of Commendation if recognizing an individual. Recognized groups must also display cohesion and teamwork noticeable to upper echelon commanders. The MTC is awarded to groups or teams that are not identifiable by OPFAC as a United States Coast Guard unit. The MTC may be awarded to military personnel, Coast Guard Auxiliarists, and civilians.[3]


The ribbon is primarily scarlet in color, with Old Glory Blue edges 964 in (3.6 mm) wide. In the center there are four white stripes 116 in (1.6 mm) wide, spaced 132 in (0.79 mm) apart.[4]

For civilians there is a lapel pin that is awarded in lieu of a service ribbon. The lapel pin is in the shape of an isosceles triangle 58 in (16 mm) wide with a height of 916 in (14 mm). The pin is nickel plated with red and blue enameled surfaces referencing the pattern of the service ribbon.[5]

Additional awards of the Meritorious Team Commendation are denoted by award stars with the award authorized to all Team Coast Guard units. For those Coast Guard commands who are awarded the Meritorious Team Commendation under field operating conditions, the Operational Distinguishing Device is authorized.[3]
