The Air Force Longevity Service Ribbon was established by Air Force Chief of Staff General Thomas D. White and promulgated by Air Force General Orders Number 60, November 25, 1957.
This ribbon has been made retroactive without restriction.
The Air Force Longevity Service Ribbon is awarded to military members of the Air Force who complete four years of honorable active or reserve military service (including service with other components).
Order of Precedence
The Air Force Longevity Service Ribbon is worn after the Air Force Overseas Service Ribbon (Long Tour) and before the Military Training Instructor Ribbon.
The Air Force Longevity Service Ribbon may not be worn on the Army, Navy, or Coast Guard uniforms.
Additional awards are denoted by bronze oak leaf clusters (a silver oak leaf cluster denotes a sixth award).
The Department of the Air Force General Order 60, Nov. 25, 1957 authorized this ribbon. It is awarded to all service members of the U.S. Air Force who complete four years of honorable active or reserve military service with any branch of the United States Armed Forces. The Air Force Longevity Service Award is a ribbon that replaces the Federal Service Stripes previously worn on the uniform.
The ribbon is ultramarine blue divided by four equal stripes of turquoise. Bronze oak-leaf clusters are worn on the ribbon to indicate subsequent awards of the Air Force Longevity Service Award.
