The Basic Training Honor Graduate Ribbon is a military decoration of the United States Air Force and Coast Guard which recognizes top recruits who graduate at the top of their training classes upon completion of basic training.

Coast Guard

The Coast Guard Basic Training Honor Graduate Ribbon was first created on March 3, 1984 with the first presentation in April of that same year to then Seaman apprentice Scott Woodard. The Basic Training Honor Graduate Ribbon is presented to those service members who graduate in the top three percent of their basic training instruction class.

Retroactive presentations of the Basic Training Honor Graduate Ribbon may be awarded upon application from the service member to the United States Coast Guard. In such cases, the award will be presented for basic training graduation prior to 1984, only with supporting documentation and a written request from the service member.

Air Force

The Air Force Basic Military Training Honor Graduate Ribbon was established in April 1976 by order of the Air Force Chief of Staff, General David Charles Jones. The decoration is awarded to graduates of Air Force basic training who have obtained an honor graduate designation and demonstrate excellence in all areas of academic and military training.

The Air Force Basic Military Training Honor Graduate Ribbon is a one time decoration and may not be awarded retroactively.
