Default Do CMP awards earned while civilian carry over to military?

I was wondering if there had ever been a situation where someone went Distinguished(Or made the President's 100) as a civilian, then joined the military. Could you still wear the award or tab?

Thanks,
Carlos

No, CDRT and Rubicon762 are both incorrect for the USN.
I'll let other services speak for themselves.




The Navy Distinguished Pistol/Rifle is not the same as the civilian that is worn on the Navy uniform. Ours are governed by the OPNAV Instruction and awarded separately. If you are on active duty, you can go Distinguished via both paths, but allowed to only wear the Navy Pistol medal. You can carry a certain number of points from your civilian EIC matches toward your Navy Distinguished, but the rest have to be earned during approved matches IAW the OPNAV Instruction when you are on Active/Reserve duty. The current instruction is under revision, but the information above is not correct. I checked with the OIC of the USNMT to be sure. The only friction point is the P100. The instruction is not clear on the P100, as it's simply not adressed. We will need to fix that. Fundamentally the concept is that you wear awards you earn while in the service. If you went Distinguished before you will have no problem earning another badge in uniform as you've already established that your an excellent marksman and you'll have two . Win!

Also, as an end note, Officers may not wear the P100 brassard or medal in any uniform.
