Question1: What is the tri-color with the stars?
Answer1: Philippine Republic Presidential Unit Citation Badge (PRPUCB). The color is blue, white and red. If there is one Bronze Service Star on it, that means the individual wearing the PRPUCB has received it twice.
Question2: Is this the long service medal?
Answer2: Negative on that. The Long Service Medal is plain red.
Observation: Usually I see 3 ribbons on the left side, but on some occassions I see 4.
Answer: Those are not ribbons but citation badges placed above the right pocket. The ones on the uniform of CSAFP are the following: Philippine Republic Presidential Unit Citation Badge, Martial Law Citation Badge, February 1986 Revolution Ribbon, and the People Power 2 Ribbon. The two ribbons are not supposed to be there because the citation badges are made of brass/metal. Since the ribbons were made of silk moire fiber, it should be placed over the left pocket along with the Disaster Relief and Rehabilitation Operation Ribbon.
