Description: The French fourragére may be awarded by the French government if a unit was cited twice in the dispatches. Award of the fourragére is not automatic and requires a specific decree of the French government. The fourragére is the same colors as the ribbon for the Croix de Guerre. If a unit is cited four times, the fourragére colors are changed to that of the French Medaille Militaire instead of the Croix de Guerre. The French Fourragére is authorized for both permanent and temporary wear. Personnel assigned to a unit which was awarded the fourragére may wear the fourragére while assigned to the unit.
