Ribbon appears to be the Red Service Ribbon with printed device for senior members of the Civil Air Patrol. This ribbon may be obsolete.

The Civil Air Patrol ribbon is post-WWII, possibly 1960s. The old WWII style clutches were substituted for the usual clutches.

They quit using props I believe, we had props for clasps though. They go the same way, silver and bronze, note, the attached photo, them are my C.A.P. ribbons. I was an E-4. from left to right is the Feik ribbon, qualification for an E-4. I have two other ribbons I earned that should go new, one is the Arnold ribbon which mother one time washed my ribbons and this was destroyed, this is for E-3, and the Curry which is for E-2. Next though is the CCSR (Cadet Community Service Ribbon). For 60 hours of community service (hey I was a school janitor, I earned that one). And the CRR (Cadet Recruiter Ribbon). For recruiting 2 cadets, the clasp designates another award so all in all I recruited 3 cadets and 1 senior, a total of 4 members. For reference, for a year in two months I was fairly decorated as a cadet, never got to do any EMS (Emergancy Services) though.
