Site Update
Posted by: Dale Franks on Tuesday, February 06, 2007

I have finished a revision to the US Military Ribbons presentation in the "Resources" section on the sidebar. The old presentation had some colors wrong on a few of the ribbons. More importantly, it was missing some ribbons, since the services have introduced a few new ones since the original presentation was done.

The new presentation includes all the new medals, including all of the relevant UN medals now authorized. It also includes an entirely new section for the display of civilian awards authorized for wear on military uniforms.

Finally, I got rid of some of the ribbons. Officially, some medals such as the UN Medal for Korea, Philippine Liberation Medal, etc. are still in service. But, I thgink you'd be hard pressed to find anyone still wearing Korean-War era medals, much less WWII. Medals don't expire, of course, so, theoretically, WWI or Civil War medals are still authorized for wear. But, there's no one left around to wear them—and certainly not on active duty—so I've eliminated all pre-Vietnam campaign and service medals.

The new presentation is here, if you're interested.

P.S. The Air Force now has a medal called the Air and Space Campaign Medal. The Air and Space Campaign Medal. Someone at HQAF is thinking ahead. Way ahead.

I guess they needed a medal that they can award to Stargate Command.
