8. Citations

Citations are awards from Branch or Division Heads and are granted monthly to recognize a members various achievements to UFS for which there is either no equivalent award, or the action is not quite deserving of an existing decoration.

They initiate with the appropriate department head or Commanding Officer, and need only to be approved by the Commanding Admiral. They are the most common award aboard any ship or station.

Examples include:

Citations do not come with Ribbons or medals just a mention on the service Jackets

9. Commendations

Major commendations are usually unit-level awards given by the Commanding Admiral to recognize service to that particular ship, station, Branch or Division. These can be granted monthly or yearly.

Minor commendations are departmental-level awards within a particular division or aboard a starbase/starship. They initiate with the appropriate department head or Commanding Officer, and need only to be approved by the Commanding Admiral. They are the most common award aboard any ship or station.

Examples of both Commendation types include:

Commendations do not come with Ribbons or medals just a mention on the service Jackets

Section 3. Clustering

When a decoration is awarded more than once to a particular crewmember, a second medal is not awarded, instead a cluster is earned.

Clusters are small devices of either bronze, silver, or gold. Each bronze cluster represents a duplicate award, with bronze clusters being the only ones that take the actual award into consideration during the counting process.. In other words, the first time one received an award, it would be plain without any clustering devices on top. On a duplicate award of the same decoration, one would get a single bronze cluster. On yet another award of that decoration, another bronze cluster would be awarded. So someone possessing a decoration with two bronze clusters would actually have been awarded that particular award 3 times.

At five awards, the award itself ceases to be counted and instead earns a silver cluster. Thus any decoration with a silver cluster denotes five awards, not six. On the rare chance that a sixth decoration would be awarded, that crewmember would receive a bronze cluster but it is considered bad form to mix cluster types. Most would wait until their tenth such award and then wear a second silver cluster.

It should be noted that certain decorations such as citations and major and minor commendations may be awarded many, many times during a career. In that event, a gold cluster can be worn to represent

Clusterexample.jpg

Section 4. Order of Precedence

When displaying your awards on your uniform, there are several things one must pay attention to. Firstly and most importantly it is crucial to realize that some awards are more important than others. This means that while ordering your awards on either your uniform or on a Ribbon Display Rack, one must pay specific attention the order in which you arrange the ribbons.

When arranging your awards, you should always begin with your lowest precedent ribbon (Look below for the order of Award precedence), placing it on the lower right hand corner of your rack, continue by selecting the next ribbon and placing that to the right of your first ribbon. Continue this until you have four ribbons in one row, once this occurs, move up to the next row, again starting in the right corner and arranging them in order from lowest to highest. Continue until you have placed all your awards in, always putting rows in multiples of 4. If on the top row you have less than 4, be sure to space the awards evenly across the top. If you have multiples of any award, for example 2 Good Conduct awards, use the rules of clustering, adding the device on top of one of the awards. In addition, if you ever have a service award and for example you get another service award, (i.e. going from 1 Year Service Award to 2 Year Service Award) you only need to display the most recent award.

I hope this explains better the concept of arranging your awards. Remember putting your awards in a rack is completely optional. Now I will explain the order of precedence for awards. As a general rule, Annual Awards hold a higher precedence than Branch Awards which hold a higher precedence than Service Awards. Within Annual awards, Lower Honors < Medium Honors < Top Honors < Special Honors. In Branch Awards, all Branches hold equal footing, however when arranging your Awards, it is usually common for you to place the awards given to you from your branch as higher than awards from other branches. The only exception to this rule is that Command Awards are given a higher precedence than any other Branch. Within each Branch, there should be at least one annual award, this holds higher precedence than the monthly awards. Within Branch Awards, other branches awards < your branches awards < Command Branch. Finally service awards, this is generally if you have one the first slot in your award rack, simple as that as you will only ever have one of these displayed at a time.

I hope this better explains the process of Awards and their order of precedence. Ask the Director of Promotions and Awards if you have any questions. Keep up the good work, and keep on Trekking.
