National Guard ribbons are easily some of the toughest to find and very few places, including these bases, will carry them.
Milwaukie, OR (PRWEB) June 14, 2013
Local uniform superstore, USA Military Medals, is now exclusively stocking Hawaii National Guard military ribbons, today, here, expanding their inventory to better support Soldiers there.
The ribbons – including the Hawaii National Guard 1968 Federal Service Ribbon, Hawaii National Guard Active Duty Basic Training Ribbon, Hawaii National Guard Commendation Medal Ribbon, Hawaii National Guard Distinguished Service Order Ribbon, Hawaii National Guard Medal for Merit, Hawaii National Guard Operation Kokua Ribbon, Hawaii National Guard Recruiting Ribbon, Hawaii National Guard Service Medal Ribbon and the Hawaii National Guard State Active Duty Ribbon – are available in the so-called “thin” style or the more traditional slide on versions.
“There are bases for every branch spread out across the islands,” said USAMM LLC President of Business Operations, Jared Zabaldo.
USAMM owns and operates USA Military Medals along with various other e-commerce uniform stores.
“There’s Fort Shafter, the ever expansive Schofield Barracks along with five or six others,” Zabaldo said before adding, “Not to mention Hickman Air Force Base and Pearl Harbor.”
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.
“Being that there are plenty of places for all five branches to find awards, there are also that many more folks who need the more obscure ribbons,” explained Zabaldo.
These Hawaii ribbons are available for purchase on UMM now, as well as through the online “Ez Rack Builder” program – a free uniform tool available to all veterans and active duty service personnel.
“National Guard ribbons are easily some of the toughest to find and very few places, including these bases, will carry them,” 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.
