Criteria: Issued to those U.S. Navy service members who have received the Navy E Ribbon for winning a “Battle Efficiency Award.” Also know as the “Battle E Device,” the attachment denotes the number of Navy E awards a given service member has received. The first award of the Navy E Ribbon is automatically granted one Battle E Device. For the second and third award, additional Battle E devices are displayed on the award ribbon. When a service member receives a fourth award of the Navy E Ribbon, a wreathed Battle E Device is awarded which effectively “closes out” the award ribbon. This is since, once a fourth award of the Navy E Ribbon has been bestowed, there are no further devices authorized to display additional awards of the Navy E Ribbon. It is therefore common for some service members to have received more than four Navy E Ribbons (there are records of some personnel receiving as many as two dozen) yet only display the maximum of four on the award ribbon.
