...I absolutely guarantee that nowhere in the country, including those Alaskan installations, is going to have all these Guard ribbons.
(PRWEB) June 11, 2013
Local uniform superstore, USA Military Medals, is now offering exclusive Alaska National Guard military ribbons, today, here, in its efforts to better assist Alaska Soldiers with their dress uniform needs.
The ribbons – including the Alaska National Guard Adjutant General’s Marksmanship Proficiency Award Ribbon, Alaska National Guard Air Medal Ribbon, Alaska National Guard Brig. Gen. John R. Noyes Medal Ribbon, Alaska National Guard Cold War Victory Ribbon, Alaska National Guard Commendation Medal Ribbon, Alaska National Guard Community Service Medal Ribbon, Alaska National Guard Distinguished Service Medal Ribbon, Alaska National Guard Legion of Merit Medal Ribbon and the Alaska National Guard State Service Medal Ribbon – are available in both the sleeker, stream-lined “thin” style or the more traditional slide-on variant.
“There are three bases in Alaska where a Soldier can hope to find military ribbons,” said USAMM LLC President of Business Operations, Jared Zabaldo.
USAMM owns and operates UMM as well as various other military uniform e-commerce stores.
“Those bases are Fort Greely, Fort Richardson and Fort Wainwright,” he explained, before adding, “One might have the most luck at Wainwright, because they’re complimentary to Fairbanks and so more Soldiers go through there.”
“But I absolutely guarantee that nowhere in the country, including those Alaskan installations, is going to have all these Guard ribbons,” 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.
“Not only do we carry the largest supply out of anyone, we assemble those ribbon racks and ship within hours,” said Zabaldo. “Show me anyone who can do that.”
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.
