Milwaukie, OR (PRWEB) February 19, 2013
Military uniform superstore, USA Military Medals, is honoring Missouri Air and Army National Guard members, here, today, by supplying eight Missouri State military ribbons essential to the dress uniform.
The ribbons, including the Missouri National Guard 5-Year Long Service Ribbon, Missouri National Guard Adjutant General’s 20 Year Service Ribbon, Missouri National Guard Basic Training Ribbon, Missouri National Guard Commendation Medal Ribbon, Missouri National Guard Desert Storm Ribbon, Missouri National Guard Meritorious Service Medal Ribbon, Missouri National Guard Recruiting and Retention Ribbon, and the Missouri National Guard Emergency Duty Service Ribbon, are available in either the so-called “thin” variant, or the standard slide-on.
“Just this last week, an official welcome home ceremony was held for members of the Missouri Air Guard’s 239TH Combat Communications Squadron, after a six-month deployment to Afghanistan,” said USAMM, LLC President of Business Operations, Jared Zabaldo.
USAMM owns and operates UMM along with various other e-commerce stores.
“So effective was the 239th, that at least 24 Soldier decorations were awarded on Saturday, including two Bronze Stars,” said Zabaldo.
Supplying Missouri Guard members dress uniform items and ready to wear, mil-spec ribbon racks, UMM is also offering the free, online uniform tool, “EZ Rack Builder,” an additional resource for these awards.
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.
“Our duty is to honor the Missouri Guard, by having their ribbons ready and available for moments like these,” added 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.
