The Georgia National Guard Humanitarian Service Award honors Georgia National Guard members who make significant contributions to humanitarian efforts.
The Georgia National Guard consists of the Georgia Army National Guard and the Georgia Air National Guard, which are currently estimated to number 11,100 and 3,000 members respectively. The Army component, headquartered in Marietta, traces its roots back to 1751 militia activity in Savannah. The Air component was formed officially in May of 1948, although its origins lie in the 840th Aero Squadron, a non-flying unit that supported World War I efforts; the Air guard is based in Brunswick, Georgia.
The ribbon is dark blue with a thin vertical stripe of brown, yellow, and green toward the center proceeding from right to left.
