    I believe the ribbon bar is a civilian award awarded for efficiency in war production or for some other recognition having to do with supporting the war effort. It is a WWII ribbon.

    I doubt the military let him serve 21 years at the same duty station it just doesn't happen. Was he a veteran who also was a civilian goverment employee at picatinny arsenal after WWII??

Size:  3.0 KBThis was authorized on July 1, 1943 for faithful and meritorious service by employees in various civilian jobs within the War Department. There were three grades, 6 months service, 10 years service and 25 years service.

    The various ribbons can be found on page 32 of the National Geographic Insignia and Decorations book from WWII.

    The 6 month ribbon was a plain blue ribbon with three thin stitched horozintal lines and the insignia design of either the Office of the Secretary of War; War Department General Staff; Army Ground Forces; Army Air Forces or Army Service Forces.

    The 10 year ribbon had an added thin white vertical stripe at each edge and the 25 year had thin red and white stripes.

    These were strictly for wear on civilian clothes.
