    Greetings! I’m joining the Auxiliary as a prior service Marine and I do understand the Coast Guard Auxiliary has their own set of rules and regulations but I did have a couple questions in terms of the uniform and ribbons/badges. In the Marine Corps I earned a couple rifle badges and my last being an Expert that I got out with. Will I be able to convert that to the Coast Guard equivalent ribbon with the E device in the center? Second question, is it also customary to mix service ribbons that you earned in the military with the ribbons you’ll earn in the Auxiliary? Something about that doesn’t sit well with me for some reason being that they don’t consider the Auxiliary “military”. They’re both earned but I just personally don’t know if I could do that or if I’d be the only Auxiliarist doing that. And lastly, would I still be able to wear my service stripes on the Coast Guard Auxiliary dress uniform? I know it’s a bit much but I don’t want to wear things and start sewing shit on that I’m not sure about. Thank you.

    You are entitled to wear the awards earned, you don’t convert them. Your .MIL ribbons supersede the Aux ones. You’ll just stack the rack.

    Take a look at chapter 11 of the Auxiliary Manual COMSTINST M16790.1 G. It lists what ribbons are authorized and their order of precedence

    Hi Grlaqm.  

    I had the same question and found the following site that will allow you to select your ribbons and output the order of precedence for you.  http://ribbons.cgaux.info/cgi-bin/ribbons.pl

    Just remember that you are only allowed two devices, one above the ribbons and one on the pocket flap.

    Your .MIL ribbons supersede the Aux ones.


    That hasn't been true for more than 20 years. As stated earlier, the AuxMan or the referenced site shows the correct order of precedence. In fact, in most cases, an Aux equivalent to a military decoration takes precedence to the military decoration since the Aux is the parent service. And just in case someone is curious, state militia awards and Civil Air Patrol awards cannot be worn on the Aux uniform.

    Federal ribbons supersede AUX ribbons.
