:rolleyes: "GREETINGS & SALUTATIONS!" The Civil Air Patrol which is an Auxiliary of the United States Air Force issued a form of service ribbons from the start, folded like a trianle I believe? I could be wrong? They then had regulation service ribbons featuring the three-blade propeller in the centre and then later came up with an assortment of service ribbons for adults and cadet members, they changed these designs later. I do not have the dates of introducted and the changes, however? Perhaps Lee Ragan or others might know? Major General Tony Pineda I believe was awarded their highest medal? Anyway, I'll show the ribbons and medals of the C.A.P. I have pictures of, maybe someone else can show those that are missing from here? Thank you! :rolleyes: Sarge Booker of Tujunga, California ([email protected]) [POST SCRIPT: I am looking for the Civil Defense Ribbons from the C.A.P. with a small round device showing a triangle with letters CD inside, thanks!]
