YES! Read on... (BTW Derek, you're using the wrong link for your ribbons. Please use this: http://www.pbase.com/image/85419086/small.jpg
Ok marines... here's some NEW & IMPROVED.
First, I'd like to thank Kevin for finding a convenient way of obtaining ribbons for our uniforms... From now on, all ribbons assigned for drops or other achievement can be obtained through paradestore.com
As you know, alll of your ribbons are stored on my PBase and can be seen here: http://www.pbase.com/sharpuscm/recipients
If you go and click on your name, you'll see the names of each ribbon and what achievement it represents.
So you want to buy these ribbons and stick 'em on your chest, eh? Very simple. Take note of each ribbon you've earned and return here: http://www.pbase.com/sharpuscm/ribbons
If you click on the Atlanta Colony Campaign ribbon, you'll find its colours, and best of all a SKU which you can enter at paradestore.com
. Be sure to switch your search criteria to SKU when searching for it. Doing a search for the Atlanta ribbon SKU RBN16RYGORY gives us this
... click on "View Details" and you're ready to add it to your shopping cart. Yes, it's that simple. Some ribbons are "flipped" meaning they are worn with a 180° turn. This helps to maximize the potential use of each multi-cloured ribbon.
You're a real combat veteran with more than one drop? Add a numeral! Numerals are available here: http://www.paradestore.com/detail.aspx?ID=555
I recommend a bronze finish.
You have an option to select "Ribbon Slide and Clutch" or "Ribbon Only". The option with clutch is for marines with one decoration and "Ribbon Only" is for decorated veterans such as Tony Leach or myself... who will need Ribon Bar Mounts.
Ribbon bar mounts are found here: http://www.paradestore.com/detail.aspx?ID=564
As per MCO P1020.34F MARINE CORPS UNIFORM REGULATIONS Chapter 5, Section 5301, paragraph 6:
Parallel rows of ribbon bars will either be spaced 1/8 inch apart or placed together without spacing at the individual's option.
I would like to present to you the addition of a few ribbons in order of precedence:
Valor in Adverse Service Medal
For service in uniform at a colony drop in spite of injury or illness.
Minor Colony Patrol
Awarded for successful patrol of a colony of 38'000 colonists or less.
For previous service in a military or para-military organization other than Colonial Marines.
Operations Merit of Achievement
For service in uniform at a Colonial Marines Colony Drop Operations Table exceeding one hour.
Pte Chris Chulamanis Memorial Ribbon
Awarded to a marine who served at any drop in uniform in 2008.
So... if you qualify for any of the above ribbons, please let me know and I will update your digital ribbon bar.
