    Ribbons themselves are not rare, but the medals they represent can be.

    I am not familiar with this one. It is not American or British military
    as far as I know. It could be anything from American Legion
    to Middle Eastern, European, etc..........

    Good one Rob - I searched the net for a half an hour and couldn't find
    anything like it. Perhaps I didn't look long enough.........!

    Thanks... I was proud of that little triumph

    I found it here: USA Military Medals, Army Medals, Navy Medals, Air Force Medals, Marine Corps Medals, Coast Guard Medals, Civilian Military Medals, Rack Builder, Ribbons, which although is actually a business selling military insignia it makes an excellent resource for US ribbon ID.

    It's just as well it was. If you go to the National Guard section you're faced with another section for each state... Alabama... Alaska... Arizona... but I took a guess at Texas and ...yes! Score! I'd probably have got bored at Michigan otherwise...
