SECTION 30-8-8


   § 30-8-8  Rhode Island national guard emergency service ribbon. – (a) Whenever members of the national guard are ordered into state service pursuant to the provisions of § 30-2-5 or 30-2-6, then the Rhode Island national guard emergency service ribbon may be awarded for performance over and above the line of duty in the name of the governor, to any person who, while a commissioned officer, warrant officer, or enlisted person of the Rhode Island national guard, serves honorably during any part of that emergency. No more than one Rhode Island national guard emergency service ribbon shall be awarded to any one person, but for each succeeding service, sufficient to justify the award of a Rhode Island national guard emergency service ribbon, a bronze oak-leaf cluster shall be awarded in lieu thereof.

   (b) The adjutant general shall follow the provisions of §§ 30-8-6 and 30-8-7 with reference to the design and procurement of the ribbon and the rules, regulations, and orders with reference thereto.
