Military awards retailer, USA Military Medals, is now stocking eleven Colorado National Guard ribbons, today, here, as part of its dedication to ensuring Colorado National Guard Soldiers have a convenient resource for their dress uniform needs.
The ribbons – comprising of the Colorado National Guard Achievement Ribbon, Colorado National Guard Active Service Medal Ribbon, Colorado National Guard Commendation Ribbon, Colorado National Guard Foreign Deployment Service Ribbon, Colorado National Guard Long Service Medal Ribbon, Colorado National Guard Ribbon, Meritorious Conduct Medal Ribbon, Colorado National Guard Meritorious Service Medal Ribbon, Colorado National Guard Mobilization Support Ribbon, Colorado National Guard Recruiting Ribbon, Colorado National Guard Soldier/Airman of the Year Award Ribbon, and the Colorado National Guard State Emergency Service Ribbon – may be purchased in both the so-called “thin” variety as well as the more traditional slide-on version.
“There are currently about 4,000 Colorado Army National Guard Soldiers, and every single one has dress uniform requirements,” said USAMM, LLC President of business operations, Jared Zabaldo.
USAMM owns and operates USA Military Medals along with various other military uniform e-commerce stores.
“Also, I know the 140th Wing returns home from overseas soon, and they’ll only have Buckley Air Force Base,” said Zabaldo.
In addition to selling ribbons in a finished state for customer use, UMM also builds military-spec ready-to-wear ribbon racks with virtually every State’s National Guard awards.
From military slang, a military ribbon or medal “rack” refers to the colorful rows of awards typically found above the wearer’s left pocket on U.S. armed forces dress uniforms.
“Basically, all of these Colorado Guard personnel have the same uniform needs as any other Soldier,” said Zabaldo. “So having these awards in-stock and ready to ship makes us a valuable resource.”
These Colorado ribbons are available for purchase on UMM and through the online “Ez Rack Builder” program – a free uniform tool available to all veterans and active duty service personnel.
USA Military Medals is an internet-based company formed in 2005, carrying more than 12,000 dress uniform products in stock and specializing in custom military medal and military ribbon rack production with their state-of-the-art rack builder. USA Military Medals also operates a brick and mortar store servicing local military personnel and veterans.
