    Megan,

    I don’t have the DIA awards manual, so I went to Wikipedia to check on the DIA awards.  According to their ribbon chart (no information as of yet), it’s called DIA Excellent Service Medal (query_1).  I have contacted the DIA for any information on awards and their criteria with no response.

    Here’s the information from the US Navy’s NAVPERS 15.790 of 1948 (Navy’s Awards Manual):

    (3) A bronze star, three-sixteenths of an inch in diameter, will be placed on the service ribbon in lieu of clasp authorized . When any person has been commended as the result of the recommendation of the board of awards by the Secretary of the Navy for performance of duty during World War I not justifying the award of a Medal of Honor, a Distinguished Service Medal, or a Navy Cross, he shall wear a silver star for each such citation.

    (4) A bronze Maltese cross, three-sixteenths of an inch in diameter, will be placed on the service ribbon for those officers and men of the Marine Corps and Medical Corps, United States Navy, who were attached to the American Expeditionary Forces in France any time between 6 April 1917, and 11 November 1918, and who are not entitled to any battle clasp provided for by General Order No. 83, War Department, 30 June 1919.

    Hope that helps you out.

    Hi Megan,

    Yep, still same email address, and you can pass on to anyone interested.  Sorry for delay, haven’t been on the computer much lately.

    There are also 11 Appendixes showing other information that should be informative, and give further information on the awards.

    The 2nd book, A Pictorial Guide to the Ribbons of the U.S. National Guard, shows current and obsolete ribbon bars used by the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the 3 territories (Guam, Puerto Rico, & US Virgin Islands), comprising the US National Guard.

    The 1st chapter shows current and obsolete ribbon bars, in correct order of precedence, by state. Chapter 2 deals with ribbon bars that are used by multiple states (I have attempted to include all of them, but might have missed a couple). Chapter 3 deals with ribbon bar which by adding a device to it, changes the criteria as to why it’s awarded. This doesn’t include devices used to denote second and subsequent awards.

    I have attached a PDF file that gives a “break-down” as to the information contained in each book, and the cost for each. I have listed the S&H cost for US shipping only, any sent outside the US would be slightly higher fee for S&H.

    If you are interested in either, or both of these books, PM me. Thank you.

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

    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. :)
