What ribbons do I need for AIT graduation?

You need the National Defense service medal, its red with a yellow stripe down the middle. And the Army Service Ribbon which is rainbow colored. You get the NDSM for joining during time of War, and the ASR for completing Army training (both BCT and AIT).

Depending on if they gave it to you yet or not you may also need to get the Global War on Terrorism medal. Its blue red and yellow. Just make sure if you do need to get it, you don't confuse it with the Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal which means you deployed early in the decade. Get onto AKO and check your ERB to be sure.
