Within this unit, we recognize four types of rewards.
- Medals, which are awarded with the corresponding ribbon. Each medal gives 10 Promotion Points.
- Ribbons, of which some are granted at the squad level, for all current squad members. Others are singular. Each ribbon gives 5 Promotion Points.
- Badges, which are awarded for proficiency achievements. Each badge gives 5 Promotion Points.
- Badge Insignias, of which only one per member is allowed at any time. These do not give any Promotion Points.
On your display uniform, your ribbons will appear on the chest, with your insignia above them, and your badges below them. Only two are allowed to be worn. If you have more than two badges, these will be placed below your uniform, alongside any medals, as our uniforms are "Class-B" Dress Blues, which are not worn with medals.
Beyond these four awards, we also give service stripes, which are placed on the arms of your display uniform. Each service stripe equates to a campaign with no more than two absences. This is placed directly below your rank.
