Replacement Medals and Display Recognitions

Navy OP | Marine OP | Air Force OP | Coast Guard OP | Army OP | Merchant Marine OP


Wear of United States military medals or ribbons on recreational clothing such as baseball caps and T-shirts is prohibited. US military medals and ribbons are properly worn on chests, lapels and collars of conventional civilian dress. This display represents the correct order of precedence of ribbons most likely to be worn today on the Merchant Marine uniform or civilian dress. Devices worn on these ribbons must be worn in a specific manner and are used to denote additional awards or participation in a specific event.
