LTC Wayne Stokes, lst Bn 8th Bde, Houston will make the black name tag for wear on the Class B or Class A uniform at a cost of $2.00 per tag  plus postage.  He now has the blanks to make the Air Guard blue name tags. They are also $2.00 each. The TXSG has a new design on the name tags, instead of Texas State Guard it has a very small TXSG under the name.  They are the 1/8" thick plastic, matte black or blue,  Wayne would prefer multiple orders per unit to save on shipping and handling but will handle individual orders. Requirements should be faxed or e-mailed to LTC Stokes at:

The information below came from http://www.army.mil/usar/ar-perscom/faq.htm which is part of the United States Army Reserve Web Site and was submitted by Major Dennis Stockl for your information.

Q: What changed about the Armed Forces Reserve Medal?  AFRM -- Armed Forces Reserve Medal. It is now awarded as a result of mobilization with an M device and an Arabic numeral when mobilized more than once in a career. The historical 10-year medal is modified, in that the medal or ribbon does not signify 10 years of qualifying Reserve service. The "Ten Year Device" is now bronze - 10, silver- 20, gold - 30.

Q: Are the Armed Forces Reserve Medal tenure devices retroactively changed? I have 20 years do I change to silver hour glass device?  YES, and YES
