So i have been told that we can wear the basic training ribbon on our ASU. Its blue with a red stripe in the middle. Now i have never recieved that ribbon i actually bought it myself. So idk if they issue them anymore. Its also not in my iperms either. I was given the national defense ribbon and the army service ribbon when i graduated basic and AIT. So my question is....are we allowed to wear that ribbon if it wasnt issued? I was also told that we can wear the 5 year service ribbon too. Thats gold and black. But like the other one...its not been issued nor is it in my iperms. Just didnt want to do anything wrong so im asking.

It sounds like you are referring to State awards. I recommend you discuss this with your leadership and also be sure your ARB is updated with any State awards you may be eligible to wear.

SGT (Join to see) - I'm curious on this, too. I want to make sure my ribbons are up to date on my blues. All I have on there now are my AD ribbons.

SGT (Join to see), the ribbon in question is specifically for MOARNG. It’s a state award so check with your chain of command.

Personally, I think those ribbons are redundant and chose not to wear them during my time in the ARNG.
