Training Awards
Note: All awards are presented on this page in their correct order of precedence and are based on the information found in the 2009 MFM. Awards are worn in the order of Achievement, Service, and Training. Also please note that the colors shown on here do not necessarily represent the correct coloring for a particular ribbon. This is due to the variations in monitors. Ribbons that are solid in color, dual, or three equal blocks, and ribbon attachments can be ordered through Glendale. Specialty ribbons can only be ordered through the SFMC Quartermaster.
