    Unknown Military Service Ribbon

    I've looked and came up empty on this. Its a service ribbon with a strand of barbed wire, so I thought POW maybe, but that wasn't it.
    Does anyone know what this is?

    Thanks,
    Charles

    The ribbon is the US Army Meritorious Unit Commendation but I have no idea what the "knots or barbed wire" are for. My commendation does not have them. A person could have been authorized this commendation for different units so JUST MAYBE each knot means another authorization.

    While I have aimed in my postings to be irenic and conciliatory, rather than polemic, I have yet endeavored to set forth the
    truth, let it favor or impugn whom it might. Any notice of misrepresentations or mistakes occurring in these prose will be most thankfully received

    The ribbon pictured is the Army Meritorious Unit Citation. Why is Good Conduct knots attached, I have no clue. As Awards & Decorations monitor for my unit, I dealt with so many ribbons & devices (Air Force/Air Guard). I've seen many who had the wrong devices attached to ribbons and that seems to be the case of the ribbon pictured above.

    Army Meritorious Unit Citation Criteria: Awarded to any U.S. Army command displaying exceptionally meritorious conduct in the performance of outstanding service, heroic deeds, or valorous actions. The Army Meritorious Unit Citation was originally established in 1944 as the "Meritorious Service Unit Plaque". On April 6, 1966, it was changed to a personal decoration, for wear on a uniform, with the ribbon established as a patch of scarlet worn inside a gold frame. Additional awards are denoted by oak leaf clusters. The award is a mid-level unit award.
    Note: This unit citation ribbon is one of the few awards issued by the military as a ribbon only. There is no accompanying medal.
