The current US Armystreamer system dates back to 1920ish. This is a living breathing system for unit recognition. The list of Campaigns has been updatedmultiple times to include new honors over the many years since initialimplementation. None of the streamersauthorized before 2001 are actually period to the time of award. Hope this helps explain the idea oforiginal/current. In the sense thatthese are government contract made to all regulation specs, by governmentapproved companies, so original US Army but not original to time period.
