The Air Force Special Duty Ribbon is intended to serve as recognition for Airmen who successfully complete a developmental special duty assignment. It was designed to acknowledge the extraordinary commitment and dedication of present and future Airmen who served in an extremely difficult duty or in a duty that requires an unusual degree of responsibility. It recognizes the fact that they experience personal sacrifice well above that of their peers in other special duties and that their efforts are critical to molding an oustanding future Air Force.
