AR600-8-22 Chapter 9; 9–25. Foreign decorations a. Eligibility requirements. Individual foreign decorations may be accepted if awarded in recognition of meeting the criteria, as established by the foreign government concerned, for the specific award. Only those decorations that are awarded in recognition of military activities and by the military department of the host country are authorized for acceptance and permanent wear. Individual decorations that do not meet these criteria may be authorized for acceptance but not for wear and will not be entered in the official military records of the recipient. Of particular importance are the criteria established by the military department of the host country; for example, if a particular decoration is authorized for award only to enlisted personnel of host country then badge may be accepted and worn by U.S. Army enlisted personnel.
Paragraph 9-26 is almost verbatim in regard to foreign badges. Appendix D & E of 600-8-22 detail foreign awards and badges allowed and if they are accept & wear, or accept only.

Speaking from the Reserve side of the house, they are listed on your 2-1, they are filed in your I-Perms and "My Records" and for Reserve boards they will show up in the awards section of your online "My Board File".

Actually, that is not entirely true like all regulations there are exceptions.
Exceptions to every rule, but still a rule.
That rule must be made of rubber or come with self corecting tape, Foriegn awards are going on the same DD214 that AD gets as well as our PQR DD2-1. I was under the impression that we are all on the same sheet of music.
