The Operation Iraqi Freedom Commemorative ribbon is intended to honor service members who carried out duties related to the occupation and liberation of Iraq.
In the center of the medal, a right-facing eagle sits atop Arabic script in green. The eagle has a shield on its chest in the Iraqi colors. A green ring encircles the image with the text “OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM” in gold and three stars on the bottom--one red, one white, and one blue. The ribbon features the red, white, and black striping of the Iraqi flag with thinner red, white, and blue edging.
