Milwaukie, Ore. (PRWEB) April 11, 2013
Military uniform superstore, USA Military Medals, is carrying Virginia National Guard Ribbons, here, today, extending its services in accommodating the dress uniform needs of Virginia Soldiers.
UMM’s stock – including the Virginia National Guard Homeland Defense Ribbon, Virginia National Guard Legion of Merit Ribbon and the Virginia National Guard Perfect Attendance Ribbon – may be purchased in either the so-called “thin” style or the more traditional slide-on ribbons.
“Just this last week, Soldiers out of Emporia gathered for a departure ceremony, and every one of those folks wore their ribbons,” said USAMM, LLC President of business operations, Jared Zabaldo.
USAMM owns and operates USA Military Medals along with various other military uniform e-commerce stores.
“And although there are massive bases in Virginia like Forts Lee and Belvoir, smaller areas like Emporia might not have the resources or time to travel all over the state,” 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.
“Also, though those Virginia bases will have exchanges, almost none of them will have National Guard ribbons,” said Zabaldo.
These racks are available for purchase on UMM and can additionally be purchased through the hi-tech online “Ez Rack Builder” program – a free uniform tool available to all service personnel and veterans regardless their service branch.
“So not only are we stocking key Virginia awards, but more importantly we are accessible to all Soldiers, online, 24/7,” 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.
