LAPD medals & ribbons........................


Recommended Posts

Ladies/Gents,

Would be grateful if anyone could help me identity the ribbons that this officer is wearing.

I'm no expert but it appears he's been a cop since at least 1992 and has some military service in there to, am curious to know why he doesn't have the police service ribbon or detective service ribbon despite this? Any suggestions?

#4 Navy Unit Commendation

#5 Navy Meritorious Unit Commendation (stars multiple awards)

#6 Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal (star multiple award)

#7 Selected Marine Corps Reserve Medal (stars multiple awards)

#11  Navy and Marine Corps Sea Service Deployment Ribbon (stars multiple awards)

#12 Navy and Marine Corps Overseas Service Ribbon (stars multiple awards)

#13 Marine Corps Security Guard Ribbon (He served as a US Embassy Marine Security Guard)

#14 Armed Forces Reserve Medal (Silver Hourglass = 20 Years in the reserves; M = Mobilized; 2 = 2x Mobilized)

 

So, this LAPD officer has a lot of time in the US Marine Corps Reserve, with multiple deployments; based on the MSG Ribbon, he likely had active duty time as well.  I am not familiar with police department decorations; however, the LAPD website lists only a "Reserve Service Ribbon" for 4000 hours as a reserve officer.  I am guessing that our fellow is a reserve Marine, but a regular duty police offer; thus no police service ribbon.

I wonder if he can wear his LAPD decorations on his USMC uniform.

Wasps, what is the source of your image?  Curious that those those service ribbons do not appear on the LAPD's own site.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
