i don't know what a 'streamer' is and the article on 'medals' doesn't define it. but the navy unit commendation has no medal. ribbon only. i know because i am entitled to this decoration and wear it with miniature medals on formalwear, in the british tradition.so, if the 'streamer' is related to a medal, the infobox is incorrect.Toyokuni3 (talk) 23:40, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

This explanation is long overdue, but presented for posterity: Streamers are related to unit awards, and are flown attached to the unit guidon, carried on parade, or posted into the ground outside a unit's offices when the commander (or someone with command orders) is present. Also, they may be embossed on the unit's official lineage and honors (its official history. Streamers authorized below service-level (Top unit on post, fitness, charitable drive winner, etc.) are command-dependent, and are not part of the official lineage and honors.
