The New Hampshire National Guard Service Ribbon honors New Hampshire National Guard members who carry out service in an emergency or other crisis as determined by the Governor.
The New Hampshire National Guard consists of the New Hampshire Army National Guard and the New Hampshire Air National Guard. The Army component originated in 1861 as the Concord Volunteers and is still based in Concord. The Air component was established in 1947 with the 133d Fighter Squadron and is headquartered in Portsmouth; its major unit is the 157th Air Refueling Wing.
The ribbon is green with purple edging and a white stripe to the interior of the edging on each side.
