Also, visit a very helpful page called THE RIBBON CHECKER.

The above information was gathered with the help of Captain Thomas Barnett, CO Horne '89-'91 and OPNAV note 1650, available online at: OPNAV NOTE 1650 (Horne is listed on page 237) OPNAV Note 1650 is somewhat cryptic and seems somewhat open to interpretation. It is for this reason the information presented on this page can not be 100% guaranteed accurate. If you have any corrections to the above information, I would be happy to hear from you, provided you have documented proof of your information. Seems the many years that have passed since these awards were presented combined with the ambiguity of the OPNAV 1650 has substantially clouded our memories with regard to some of these medals and ribbons.
