The current US Army
streamer system dates back to 1920ish.
This is a living breathing system for unit recognition. The list of Campaigns has been updated
multiple times to include new honors over the many years since initial
implementation. None of the streamers
authorized before 2001 are actually period to the time of award. Hope this helps explain the idea of
original/current. In the sense that
these are government contract made to all regulation specs, by government
approved companies, so original US Army but not original to time period.
