       “For exceptionally meritorious service and heroism in action against enemy Japanese aircraft, shore batteries, surface forces, submarines and mines in the Pacific campaign. Operating in actual contact with the enemy and under attack, the U.S.S. MANLEY performed her duties as a highspeed transport in an outstanding manner. Operating throughout the Southern Solomons campaign at a time when the United States Fleet was at a low ebb in comparison with the forces of the enemy, the U.S.S. MANLEY remained in areas under enemy control for long periods of time in support of the landing forces, making repeated landings behind the enemy lines, thus contributing greatly to the decisive victory achieved. Her courageous determination and effort were in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.”

All personnel attached to and serving on board the U.S.S. MANLEY during one or more of the designated periods are hereby authorized to wear the NAVY UNIT COMMENDATION Ribbon.

              John L. Sullivan
              Secretary of the Navy
