The Georgia National Guard Selected Reserve Forces Ribbon honors Georgia National Guard members who carried out honorable service in a Selected Reserve Force unit between the dates of October 1, 1965 and September 30, 1969 for a term of at least one year consecutively.
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 divided into equal sections of red, white, and blue from left to right.
