The Tennessee National Guard Outstanding Unit Performance Commendation Ribbon honors Tennessee National Guard units that distinguish themselves through excellent performance in training.
The Tennessee National Guard consists of the Tennessee Army National Guard and the Tennessee Air National Guard. The Army component was founded in 1887, though it traces back to militia activity in the 1800s. The Air component originated in 1917 with the creation of the 105th Aero Squadron supporting World War I efforts; it currently has approximately 1,500 members and is based in Nashville.
The ribbon is blue and is bisected by a thin vertical red stripe flanked on either side by a slightly thicker white stripe.
Additional awards may be indicated by service stars.
