The Kentucky National Guard Recruiting Ribbon honors Kentucky National Guard members who successfully secure five new enlistments.
The Kentucky National Guard is composed of the Kentucky Army National Guard and the Kentucky Air National Guard; it was converted from the Kentucky State Guard into its current form in 1912 and saw its first official service in this incarnation supporting efforts to contain border violence during the Mexican Revolution. The Army component is headquartered in Frankfort, and the Air component, established in 1947, consists of the 123d Airlift Wing and makes its base in Louisville.
The ribbon features horizontal blue, white, and red stripes from top to bottom.
Additional enlistments may be indicated by bronze stars issued in increments of five.
