    Some of you might have noticed that I have added a few CO ASM with Campaign bars to the database recently. My reasoning for doing so, is to show the different Campaign bars that are authorized by the Colorado National Guard for their Active Service Medal.

    Colorado has a number of Campaign bars that are authorized for the Active Service Medal, the Mobilization Support Ribbon, and the Emergency Service Ribbon. Although most of the Campaign bars authorized for wear on the Active Service Medal are also authorized for wear on the Mobilization Support Ribbon, they aren’t all authorized for wear on the Emergency Service Ribbon. By the same token, some of the Campaign bars authorized for wear on the Emergency Service Ribbon, are not authorized for wear on the other two.

    Over the course of the next few weeks (as I’m able to obtain the ASMs), I will be adding scans of the ASMs with the correct Campaign bars. I will also add a scan of the Emergency Service Ribbons with those Campaign bars that are exclusive to it.

    Once a soldier/airman earns either of the 3 awards, and subsequently are entitled to another campaign bar, they have a choice as to how to display on the ribbons: they can wear the ribbon bar with their choice of Campaign bar, or, they can wear the ribbon bar with 5/16th" bronze Service Stars to show the total number of Campaign bars they are entitled to.

    That’s fascinating, Robin.

    Really must get round to doing more about State medals on my website. A couple of people have sent me plenty of images already, but would you be willing to permit – with appropriate acknowledgement, of course – the use of some of the ones you’ve posted here?

    To Megan,

    Sure, if you want to use some of the scans, go ahead. Several years ago I sent you a number of scans that you used on your site, so I have no problem with you adding more. Just mention where you got them from and I’m fine with that. :)

    Ah, so el_jefe is the same Robin… OK, that’s great.

    You sent me some magnificent images before, most appreciated.

    Here’s a scan of the Mobilization Support Ribbon with Campaign bars. The only Campaign Bar missing is the "Deny Flight" bar.
