The New Mexico National Guard Long Service Ribbon honors New Mexico National Guard members who carry out five years of honorable service.
The New Mexico National Guard is composed of the New Mexico Army National Guard and the New Mexico Air National Guard. The Army component originated as a territorial militia in 1846 and is headquartered in Santa Fe. The Air component, established in 1947 when the Air Force became a distinct branch of the United States military, is based in Albuquerque and consists of the 150th Fighter Wing.
The ribbon is gold and features two thin vertical red stripes toward each edge.
The ribbon is awarded after five years and a medal after ten; addition five-year terms are indicated by bronze numeral devices.
