The Reserve Components Overseas Training Ribbon was established on July 11, 1984 by the Secretary of the Army and is awarded to members of the Army Reserves or Army National Guard for successful completion of annual training or active duty for training for a period of not less than ten consecutive duty days on foreign soil (outside the 50 states, District of Columbia, and U.S. possessions and territories), in the performance of duties in conjunction with Active Army, Joint Services, or Allied Forces. The ribbon may be awarded retroactively to personnel who successfully completed annual training or active duty for training on foreign soil in a Reserve status prior to July 11, 1984, provided they had an active status in the Reserve Components on or after July 11, 1984. Bronze numerals are used to denote second and subsequent awards.
