...when it comes time to get awards together for a DA photo or a ball, these New York Soldiers will be out of luck...Unless they go to UMM.
Milwaukie, Oregon (PRWEB) May 03, 2013
Local uniform superstore, USA Military Medals, is stocking a complete selection of New York National Guard military ribbons as part of its commitment to New York Soldiers’ dress uniform needs.
The ten ribbons – including the New York National Guard Conspicuous Service Star Medal Ribbon, New York National Guard Desert Storm Service Ribbon, New York National Guard Exercise Support Ribbon, New York National Guard Humane Service Medal Ribbon, New York National Guard Long and Faithful Service Ribbon, New York National Guard Medal of Valor Ribbon, New York National Guard Meritorious Service Ribbon, New York National Guard Military Commendation Medal Ribbon, New York National Guard Physical Fitness Ribbon and the New York National Guard Recruiting Medal, are available in the so-called “thin” variant as well as the more traditional slide-on style.
“I know of four U.S. Army installations in New York, including Fort Drum and West Point,” said USAMM, LLC President of business operations, Jared Zabaldo.
USAMM owns and operates UMM along with various other military uniform e-commerce stores.
“But I have to say that these bases are going to stock the bare minimum of uniform accoutrements, which very likely will not include state ribbons,” said Zabaldo.
UMM is also assisting these Soldiers by providing fully assembled, mil-spec ribbon and medal racks, which can additionally be purchased through the free, online uniform-program, “EZ Rack Builder.”
From military slang, a military ribbon or medal “rack” represents the colorful rows of awards typically found above the wearer’s left pocket on U.S. armed forces dress uniforms.
“So when it comes time to get awards together for a DA photo or a ball, these New York Soldiers will be out of luck,” said Zabaldo. “Unless they go to UMM, where there’s a complete inventory and fast service,” 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.
