The Vermont National Guard Outstanding Unit Service Ribbon honors Vermont National Guard units that carry out excellent service so as to set themselves apart from peer units.
The Vermont National Guard is made up of the Vermont Army National Guard and the Vermont Air National Guard, also referred to as the Green Mountain Boys. The Army component numbers approximately 3,000 soldiers and dates back to militia activity in the mid-eighteenth century. The Air component, based in South Burlington and numbering around 1,000 airmen and women, traces its roots to the 67th Fighter Wing, formed officially in October of 1946.
The ribbon features a pattern of vertical stripes in red, white, blue, red, white, and blue from right to left.
