The West Virginia Service Ribbon is officially hallmarked by the U.S. Institute of Heraldry. This ribbon is awarded for five years or more of service in the West Virginia National Guard by a member of the same. Service in the U.S. Armed Forces qualifies, providing it was rendered as part of West Virginia’s quota to those forces. This award was guessed to be authorized after World War II and is used as a ribbon bar award. Comes in a color pattern red and black from left to right. West Virginia Service Ribbons are made with the highest government standards and are US Military approved. All ribbons of the US Military are made in the USA. Ribbons are unmounted and do not come with a holding bar. To purchase this ribbon for yourself or a family member's shadow box, or display case, we require a DD-214 or other valid proof that this medal was honorably awarded.
