    Cadet Command has a limited number of national ROTC medals that it issues and the majority of ROTC Medals come from private organization like the; Veterans of Foreign War, the Sons/Daughters of the American Revolution, American Legion, etc. Does anyone know what organization produced this medal? I would like to add it to the database but do not know what to call it.

    I’ve seen that one several times, and I believe it is simply a generic planchet that a school can put on any ribbon, or one of the approved N or R series ribbons and award it as needed.

    The Medal is awarded by the Scabbard and Blades. That there insignia in the center disk. It comes in Gold, Silver and Bronze. It was first authorized in 1939, I will have to dig out my Scabbard and Blade Journal from 1942 to check the date.

    Also the blue/red ribbon is also used the AIR FORCE ROTC AIR COMMANDO AWARD. This medal was first award a few years ago and I have seen it mainly awarded to AFJROTC cadets.
