How-to Use an Online Military Ribbon Rack Builder for Your Military Ribbons

By Edited Mar 30, 2014 1 3

If you've ever wondered how to use an online military ribbon rack builder, in order to build and display all your many military ribbons, you can do so quite easily with many websites that are available to you nowadays. Since the unfortunate events of 9/11 occurred, the United States' Military occupation of countries such as Iraq and Afghanistan, has escalated quite a bit. With so many servicemen and women being deployed overseas, to this country, when they come home they are typically bestowed with great medals, awards, and ribbons in order to signify their accomplishments and achievements.

Whether one is serving in the Navy, Army, Marines, or Air Force, many servicemembers are certainly finding the need to use an online military ribbon rack builder.

Things You Will Need

Your List of Ribbons and Awards (DD-214)
Website with a Military Ribbon Rack Builder

Step 1

Before you inject all your ribbons onto an online ribbon rack builder for all your U.S. Military ribbons and awards, it is important that you know exactly what you are entitled to wear. Whether intentionally or unintentionally, the United States' Military frowns upon those who would ever even consider wearing ribbons, medals, or awards that they themselves didn't actually earn. Not only is this ashame, but, many servicemen, and women, unfortunately, have attempted to portray their awards and ribbons as being more than they actually earned and entitled.
Prior to sitting down to build your U.S. Military ribbon rack, you should definitely have an accurate picture of what ribbons and awards you are entitled. This information can be found on your DD Form 214, and you can typically receive a copy of it through your unit's administrative (S-1) section.

Step 2

Fortunately, there is a certain way that all your United States' Military ribbons, medals, and awards, should be displayed. When displayed, these awards should be displayed in precedence of the awards or ribbons that hold the greatest weight, to those that hold the least weight. While a Bronze Star Medal would be displayed, as a ribbon, highest up in precedence when building your United States' Military ribbon rack, a lesser weighted award, such as those earned for completion of basic training or in recognition of good conduct and years of service, would appear lower.

Step 3

In this step, you will want to conduct a Google search for an online United States' Military ribbon rack builder. Many companies, nowadays, have found it greatly beneficial to their business to actually allow servicemen and women the ability to construct their own Military ribbon racks on their website. Allowing this functionality allows a serviceman or woman to get a detailed picture of what their ribbon rack actually looks like, and, upon completion, they are typically presented with the opportunity to purchase either the entire constructed ribbon rack, or each individual ribbon that they need. This service has proven to be invaluable for those servicemen and women who appreciate the ease of having their ribbons and awards constructed for them, without having to do it themselves.
For anyone who is the service, you can probably testify to the fact that building your own United States' Military ribbon rack, regardless of your particular service branch, can really be a daunting and time-consuming endeavor. Having a service, such as an online ribbon rack builder, can save you great amounts of time, and can also present you with a final product, upon purchase, that is worthy of being displayed around your fellow soldiers, marines, seamen, or airmen.

Tips & Warnings

It is absolutel important that you know, prior to purchase, exactly what medals, awards, and ribbons you are actually entitled to. Accuracy is absolutely key because, unfortunately, with so many possible details surrounding the construction of your military ribbon rack, it can really be easy to mess something up. If you were awarded a certain award more than once, there are many devices, that vary dependent on ribbon and award, that should be displayed the correct way. From hour glasses to oak leaves, it is easy to see that it is the intricate details that will best portray who you are, as well as, your accomplishments.
