I am currently on Active duty in the Navy and i was told that when you become a Peace Officer you are authorized to wear your military ribbons on your uniform. IS this correct cause i have never heard of it. please shed some light on this.

The only ribbon we are authorized to wear if a Vet is our national defense service ribbon.

I don't know if we were authorized or not because nobody ever did or ever even considered it! Don't wear them.

The jobs are day and night, your job is to kill to protect are country. (thank you by the way) Our job is to keep the peace. If we kill someone its because they are trying to harm us or bystanders. Most policies is to shoot to stop.

I hope you mean "shoot to stop... the threat" I had to re-read your post a second time to make sure you really are legit, because it came off wrong to me at first. Alarms turned off, nothing to see here! :)

It's department specific. Some departments I believe have allowed soldiers/sailors to wear a purple heart ribbon. Some agencies are big on the ribbon thing, some (like mine) are not. Uniform specs vary by dept. and region.
