    I don't even know what neon black and brown would begin to signify

        I tried to clean up your awful photo taken in the Stygian black of midnight, Ansel Adams:



        And it looks like the Air Force Training Ribbon, but not exactly:



        But there are a few different styles of the AF Training Ribbon so it seems like a candidate.

          Made me chuckle, but unless there is another BMT ribbon not shown there, doubt thats it. I will have to go pull my ribbons out of the closet and see which basic ribbon I have. Fairly certain its the top one, blue-red-yellow

            But you're not going to take a better photo? Adjusting the gamma doesn't add information to the photo, it just changes the shade of the pixels. You need to cast more photons on that ribbon so that they can bounce off and provide more photons to the CCD of your phone.

            Turn on a light.

                It doesn't appear to be anything US. I looked up Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard, NOAA, Merchant Marine, Civil Air Patrol, Coast Guard Auxillary, and Public Health awards for The USA.

                Got nothing.

                  it's still brown not red and the spacing is way off to be a AFTR or BMT

                    Ok, but you can't tell if it's brown or red from the light, it looks faded to me. And what is the background color? Can't tell due to the light.

                        good point regarding the camera flash and the white background. seems like the ribbon red usually fades lighter instead of darker though, so even with the colors being all fucked up, i'm sticking with 'not typical service red' for being the stripe color.

                          the ribbon is black. middle stripe is brown, outside stripes are light green.

                            well i can see how that could have been blue red and yellow, but the spacing is still off
