Smile Marine to Air Guard - Ribbons Question


Need some help if possible.

I was in the Marines and now Air Guard. The ribbons I have are pretty easy but I wanted to check on things like service stripes and shooting badges.

What stuff, if any, transfers over to Air Force ribbons from service in the Marines.

Next month I'll try tracking down former Marines at the unit also. Just wanted to start off here first to get a jump on it.

Thanks a lot.

If they are like these, you can bring them ALL.

No service stripes, but a "Longevity Ribbon" exists.
Limited marksmanship recognition. You get a ribbon for pistol qual and a star on it for rifle.

But our swimming pools are nice.

AFI 36-2903, Chapter 4.3.

Non-Air Force Service Awards. Air National Guard (ANG) members wear state decorations when serving in state status but not while on federal active duty. Wear other military service department awards not included in Figure 4.1. in the order the awarding Service prescribes. EXCEPTION: Air Force awards take precedence over equal awards. Wear awards for wars, campaigns, and expeditions in the order earned. The Army Valorous Unit and Meritorious Unit Commendation awards are larger than Air Force ribbons. When members wear these awards with their Air Force ribbons, they must purchase rib- bons that are the same size as their Air Force ribbons.

this should help you. pick your current branch and check off your awards. it will put them in order of precedence.

I dont think qualification type ribbons carry over until you get them at your newer unit.
1)AR15 Aero Precision Skeletonized Lower
2)S&W 686 6in barrel ...686 No dash through 686-4
3) Saltworks M5 upper/lower set
