Armed forces superstore, USA Military Medals, is assisting Iowa National Guard Soldiers’, today, here, by supplying several key, Iowa dress-uniform ribbons.
The eight Iowa ribbons are available now, in either the so-called “thin” style, or the more traditional slide-on variant, and include the Iowa National Guard Active Duty Training Ribbon, Iowa National Guard Commendation Medal Ribbon, Iowa National Guard Humanitarian Service Ribbon, Iowa National Guard Leadership Ribbon, Iowa National Guard Medal of Merit, Iowa National Guard Meritorious Service Medal Ribbon, Iowa National Guard Recruiting Ribbon, and the Iowa National Guard State Service Ribbon.
“For the Presidential Inauguration last month, the Iowa Guard sent about 120 members of the 1133rd Transportation Company and other units in support of the inaugural operations,” said USAMM, LLC President of Business Operations, Jared Zabaldo.
USAMM owns and operates UMM, along with a number of other e-commerce stores.
“120 Soldiers is a pretty big number,” said Zabaldo. “So, the event sent us a lot of Iowa Soldiers looking for last minute uniform items.”
UMM also builds ready-to-wear, mil-spec ribbon and medal racks, which can additionally be purchased through the “EZ Rack Builder” –an advanced, online uniform program.
A military ribbon or medal “rack” is military slang, referring to the colorful rows of awards generally located above the wearer’s left pocket on U.S. armed forces dress uniforms.
“Although we were able to help these guys out with racks and other things, just having those Iowa ribbons on hand is huge,” said Zabaldo.
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.
