I collect medals and insignia related to the DC Militia and National Guard. If you visit Pinterest, see several of my items and other images I have found at ‘District of Columbia National Guard Medals & other militaria’.
Do you have an example of the DCNG Emergency Service Medal? I was awarded the ribbon as the onetime NCOIC of Intel (113th OSF/IN) for post-9/11 Operation Noble Eagle, but understand from seeing an old chart they had in the medal locker at the 113th MSF that the ribbon was once a medal too. I’ve only seen an example of the medal on that chart, back in 2002 when I left the DCANG.
Responding to frivilig – to the best of my knowledge the Emergency Service Ribbon was never a medal. The South Carolina NG Exceptional Service Medal uses the same ribbon – that may be what you have seen.
I Own at least one of just about all the DCNG medals and ribbons produced in the past century. Two DCNG medals in my collection date to the 19th Century – there may have been more but I’ve never seen them.
I would be happy to add to the OMSA Images Database. Please advise by email (email@example.com) where to send the images. I assume you wish jpegs of obverse and reverse of each item, correct?
