Old Wear Policy - In the past, military members could accept the unique medal presented by the UN for the specific operation, but only wear the standard UNM and ribbon. The standard UNM is the bronze medallion suspended on the ribbon which is blue background and two white stripes with coordinating service ribbon).
New Wear Policy - The Assistant Secretary of Defense approved a revision to the wear policy for UNMs. military members now accept and wear the first UNM with unique suspension and service ribbon for the mission/operation in which they qualified and affix a bronze service star for each subsequent UN mission/operation in which they participate and qualify. NOTE: Military members will not wear more than one unique UNM/ribbon.
