How to Get Your Ribbon Authorized:

After completing an activity such as Encampment, 60 hours of Community Service or recruiting a couple of your friends, you are eligible to wear the appropriate ribbon, but it must first be authorized in eServices before you can wear it. Here’s how:

  1. Fill out a CAPF 2A as follows. If a section is not listed below, leave it blank.
    • I. PERSONAL DATA: fill in all fields.
    • III. AWARD OF ACTIVITY AND SERVICE RIBBONS:
      • Check the box labeled “AWARD ACTIVITY AND SERVICE RIBBON CHECKED BELOW”
      • Select the ribbon you are requesting.
    • IV. REMARKS: fill in the following fields:
      • Comment Box
        Recruiting Ribbon: put names and CAPIDs of members you recruited.
        Community Service: put short list of where you volunteered and the hours.
      • Unit Charter No. – SWR-TX-413
      • Signature of Requester.
      • Typed Name and Grade of Requester.

  2. Obtain Commander’s Signature
    • Send the completed CAPF 2A to cp@dentoncap.org for the Commander’s signature.
  3. Update eServices
    This is the most important part!
    • Wait for the CAPF 2A to be signed and returned.
    • Log into eServices.
    • Select the gear icon next to your name.
    • Select “Service Ribbons”
    • Select “Add Previously Authorized Ribbon”
    • In the “Date Earned” field, put the date you completed the activity and earned the ribbon. This is not the date that your CAPF2A was signed. For example, the date you completed Encampment would be the date to use.
    • Select Cadet for “Ribbon Type”
    • In the drop-down menu, select the ribbon that your signed CAPF 2A has authorized.
