I'm no ribbon chaser, but I've had this question asked many times: why do basically trained service members only get one medal after training? As a reservist I feel we could be eligible for other options. I've volunteered enough to be eligible for the outstanding volunteer service medal. Is there anything else?

Other than the "Alive in 85" (pick your own year) and the Reserve version of the GCM, you're limited to what you can control. You can get some for shooting skills. Other than that, you have to go out and do something beyond showing up on weekends. Go for that IA or lead that Det. My take is if you make the most of your time as a MIL, the fruit salad tends to follow.
