    Navy Expert Shooter ribbons? How does that work? I honestly don’t think I’ve ever seen this before.

      Assigned to the Seal Teams is my guess.

      Anybody with access to a range and the proper Navy personnel to certify can get the ribbon. Air Force EOD and I was told I could attempt it at Bagram last summer but didn’t really have the chance to due to work. Don’t need to be attached to any special units or anything just right place right time.

    If your service authorizes an award, you can wear it. For example, I was authorized to wear a USCG Meritorious Team Commendation Ribbon, but not a US Army Meritorious Unit Commendation. The latter, despite being in a unit where the USA & USAF bubbas could. Logical? Nope. “Right place, right time” applies, as well as your service’s Awards Manual/regulations. The service’s awards’ process is anything but objective. IMHO

    I had the distinct pleasure of meeting him a few years back at the museum when he donated some of his uniforms and kit to be put on display. Awesome experience and a great guy.

    CMSgt Colon-Lopez is probably the most squared away SNCO I have ever seen in my time, bar none. Heard him speak when deployed about 5 years ago. Straight shooter with no love for mediocrity, status quo, or failure. Or fatbodies in uniform…that was the best part of his pep talk!
