...we’re pretty honored to be a part of [the Illinois National Guard] by always carrying these dress uniform items.

Military uniform superstore, USA Military Medals, is making things easier for Illinois National Guard Soldiers, here, today, by providing three key Illinois State military ribbons.

Stocking the Illinois National Guard Distinguished Service Medal Ribbon, Illinois National Guard Lincoln Medal of Freedom Ribbon and the Illinois National Guard Military Attendance Ribbon, UMM’s inventory also includes both the so-called “thin” variant as well as the more traditional slide-on ribbons.

“Illinois Soldiers have dress uniform requirements just like folks here in Oregon,” said USAMM, LLC President of Business Operations, Jared Zabaldo.

USAMM owns and operates UMM along with various other e-commerce stores.

“For example, the Illinois National Guard Funeral and Honors Team reached a milestone last week, conducting their 30,000 ceremony,” explained 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.

“That’s 30,000 times alone that these Soldier’s will put on their dress blues,” said Zabaldo, before adding, “So we’re pretty honored to be a part of that by always carrying these dress uniform items.”

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.
