Year Authorized:

General Description:
Authorized on April 1st, 1964 by the Secretary of the Air Force. Ribbon is largely of light blue coloring with thick white stripes near the edges and a dark blue-white-dark blue striping pattern outboard of the thick light blue center stripe.


Award Criteria (as Officially Detailed by the United States Armed Services):
"It is awarded for exemplary behavior, efficiency and fidelity during a four-year period while serving in an enlisted status in the U.S. Air Force Reserve. Awarded for a period of three continuous years of service computed from the date of assignment to a training category A, B or D for individuals with a beginning date before July 1, 1972. For individuals with a beginning date after June 30, 1972, the length of service requirement is three continuous years of service. Award the medal to individuals who accrue at least one year, but less than three years toward award of the medal and terminate their enlisted Reserve status as a commissioned or warrant officer regardless of the beginning eligibility date. Creditable service ends when called to active duty. A period of more than 24 hours between reserve enlistments counts as a break in service. Credit must begin anew after the break. An active duty period is not a break in service. Do not credit service performed in the US Army, Navy, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard Reserve components. When determining service computation, exclude service as a commissioned officer."
