I've looked for this particular ribbon around the net and I can't seem to find what it is.

First ribbon on the left in the second row just before the American Campaign.
Thanks!

Wonder if it's National Guard? There are some similar to this on this web page (which mentions many more than it shows):

Iowa State Guard (Obsolete)-- State Service Medal (20 yrs)??? This looks identical except the yellow and white fields in the center are reversed. Link: http://www.medals.la...usng/usngil.htm (scroll down to Iowa)

It's the only one even close that I have seen.

I think you've pinned it down there and it could well be that it's upside down in the in the link:

That was my feeling (probably upside-down). I don't know how accurate the references are on that site. They usually seem to be correct. The only other ribbon I have found that looks the same is for the California Cadet Corps for a Brigade Event Honor Unit (2006) Link: http://cacc305.wikis...ibbon_Chart.pdf --Which is obviously not possible with the other ribbons on this rack!!!!

It's interesting to me because I would assume the fact that the ribbons are custom made would be a good indicator that whoever made them would be up on the order of precedence. However, the two Philippine ribbons are out of order. As foreign awards, they should be on the last row after the Armed Forces Reserve Medal. And if the unknown ribbon in question is a National Guard ribbon, it should be last after the Philippine ribbons. That is why my first thought was that it is supposed to be an American Defense Service Medal ribbon that was just manufactured incorrectly.

As it stands, even thought the quality of the ribbons is nice, they are all mixed up.
