Under AR-600-8-22 Para 5-3A, it states "Effective 11 July 1984, all members of the ARNG and USAR are eligible for this award if they were active Reserve status members of the ARNG, USAR (not on active duty in the Regular Army), or AGR Soldiers at the time their unit underwent annual training or ADT on foreign soil." The way the regulation reads is that since I was in my reserve unit in 2014 when they went to the Dominican Republic, I am authorized the award as I was in an active Reserve status when they went. Am I correct? Any guidance is appreciated. I understand it's supposed to be for actually going overseas for an Annual Training, but the way the regulation reads is that I'm authorized the ribbon even though I didn't go.

You said, " They went", so of course you are not authorized the ribbon

SGT (Join to see) I have mine from when I went to Germany for AT. The only ribbons that I know of that one can wear and wasn't even there is unit citation or meritorious unit citation or presidents unit citation, then you would have to take them off if you go to a unit that doesn't have the forementioned award

The best place for you to get the correct answer is the Army regulations, here AR 600-8-22. Go to the section pertaining to the ribbon in question and it’s qualifications and read the entire requirement. Section II, Para. 5-3(e) will answer your question - bottom line? No you are not authorized to wear the ribbon if you are not "credited with completion of at least 10 consecutive duty days outside the 50 States..."
