The Georgia National Guard Olympic Support Ribbon honors Georgia National Guard members who carried out service during the Atlanta, Georgia Olympic Games, which took place in the summer of 1996.
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 red with yellow edging; it is bisected by a thin vertical blue stripe bordered by yellow and flanked by a thin green stripe on either side.
