MILITARY TRAINING INSTRUCTOR
The Military Training Instructor award is the United States Air Force equivalent of the Drill Instructor award.
Created in December of 1998, it is awarded to any member of the Air Force who completes no less than twelve consecutive months of duty as a military training instructor attached to a U.S. Air Force training command.
The Military Training Instructor Ribbon may be awarded retroactively provided a service member was on active duty, or a member of a reserve component, as of December 1998.
Additional awards of the Military Training Instructor Ribbon are presented for each consecutive three year tour of duty as a military training instructor with such additional awards denoted by oak leaf clusters.
