Last year my grandson sent his grandma a pic of himself in his dress blues. And has ribbon on his chest, I'm thinking WTF you just got out of boot. I didn't know anything about the ND ribbon!

It’s a ribbon that is duplicated by what other ribbons imply.

GWOT says you were active during the global war on terror. The Afgan or Iraq ribbons say WHERE you were deployed, and not having one says you weren’t deployed.

Having an AIT ribbon says you graduated AIT, but anyone that has GWOT would have already graduated in order to serve active duty. So the rainbow ribbon is also a duplicate ribbon.

Essentially, anyone 30 days out of AIT and active duty gets one entire row as a freebie. Reservists won’t get the GWOT until they get orders that are 30 consecutive days or more (or deployed of course).

Having “only” the ND to me means the guy washed out of the Army, and didn’t complete either BCT or AIT. Otherwise he would have branded his car with a more specific award representative of his service.

However, the ND is the highest award new soldiers will have for some time until they get an achievement medal or better (even the good conduct supersedes it). If someone ends their military service with the ND being their highest award then something is amiss.

You get a ribbon for graduating AIT?? WTF?

Also, the standard three ribbons (for the Army- ND, GWOT and Army Service) are not given anymore. I believe you only get two, maybe one but definitely not all three.

I got all three on my DD214 when I was issued it last september after my last set of orders ended. My 4th is the overseas training ribbon.

30+ consecutive days of active outside of tradoc get's the GWOT
I got the overseas training ribbon as well, an picked up 18 days of overseas duty on my DD214 as well.

The only actual ribbon "given" to me was my ND. I am authorized to wear the others and bought them myself.

I even got my qual badges on my 214.

they should still get the Army service ribbon upon graduation from AIT it has been like that for years. i got it when i graduated AIT in 91. it was called the "thanks for coming" ribbon. they when DADT was put in. it was called "DADT" ribbon for the rainbow colors it has.

as for the ND ribbon that was given out years after Desert Storm and stoppod for a brief time then awarded again when the current war started up.

correction i finished my first AIT in 90. yeah i'm old. i never knew the GWOT medal was handed out after AIT. i know the Army Service Ribbon and National Defense have been given out after AIT. but like i said it has been discontinued before the National Defense Ribbon.

was the GWOT medal given out to those who were not in Iraq or Afghanistan?
