The Colorado National Guard Mobilization Support Ribbon honors Colorado National Guard members who demonstrate outstanding behavior and noteworthy comportment when called into mobilization.
Composed of the Colorado Army National Guard and the Colorado Air National Guard, the Colorado National Guard is approximately 5,000 strong, with around 3,500 soldiers and 1,500 airpersons. The Army component traces its roots back to 1860, when it formed as the Colorado Volunteer Militia, and the Air component was formed in August of 1917 as the 120th Aero Squadron to support the United States’ World War I efforts.
The ribbon is beige and is bisected by a black vertical stripe with white borders; each edge of the ribbon features a thin vertical stripe of blue, white, and red proceeding inward.
Subsequent awards may be indicated by clasps or bronze stars.
