USMC Heraldry and Streamers Procurement: A How-To Guide

The USMC Heraldry and Streamers Procurement How to Guide provides guidance to Marine Corps Units on the offline requisition process of streamers and heraldry items. Please read instructions in entirety to mitigate delay in requisitioning process. 

STEP 1: HOW TO FILL OUT THE FORM

Each streamer requisition requires a DD-1348 form, and must include the following:

  1. Full name of streamer with any devices. Note: Do not add any NSNs; LOGCOM Albany will add them.
  2. Document number; each requisition must have its own document number.
  3. U/I, Quantity, SuppAdd, Sig Code, Fund Code, Priority, RDD and Adv Code.
  4. Name of unit that will be displaying the streamer requisitioned along with: Unit POC Name, Email, and Phone Number (COMM & DSN).
  5. Access the DD-1348 form.

STEP 2: HOW TO SUBMIT FOR AUTHENTICATION

Each streamer requisition is reviewed by the Marine Corps History Division for accuracy before being forwarded to LOGCOM Albany for processing.

  1. To ensure your form is received, please save your file as an Excel form (.xlsx) or PDF ONLY.  If unsure of the file type, simply scan and email as PDF. The form DD-1348 is also available here.
  2. Email completed DD-1348 form(s) via email to the History Division at history.streamers@usmcu.edu.
  3. The History Division will authenticate and approve whether the Unit rates their request(s) and forward requests to LOGCOM Albany’s organizational mailbox SMBLOGCOMLSMCSRM@usmc.mil. Units will be copied on the forward. 
  4. LOGCOM Albany will review the completed DD-1348 form(s) for accuracy and add the associated NSNs. Once verified, the requisitions will be forwarded to the DLA TS MLNO for MILSTRIP submission and processing.

STEP 3: MONITOR AND TRACK REQUISITIONS

  1. LOGCOM Albany will notify the Unit once the MILSTRIP(s) are submitted. Using Units can monitor and or track requests by the document numbers on the submitted DD-1348.
  2. Follow up inquiries can be directed to LOGCOM Albany’s organizational mailbox SMBLOGCOMLSMCSRM@usmc.mil or the DLA MLNO.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions about Streamers

What does my unit rate?

  • Check your lineage and honors certificates or streamer entitlement (email the History Division at history.division@usmcu.edu for assistance).

How do I track the requisition?

  • Once the requisition is forwarded to MCLB Albany, you can track it by the document numbers on your DD-1348 or send an email to SMBLOGCOMLSMCSRM@usmc.mil or the DLA MLNO POC for further inquiries.

I cannot find the NSNs to fill out the DD-1348 form, where do I get them from?

  • You do not need the NSNs.  Just fill in the full name of the streamer with its devices (example: three bronze stars)

How long does it take before the unit receives the streamers after they send their order?

  • On average, once processed it currently takes anywhere from 30 – 90 days for a unit to receive their streamer order.  MCLB Albany does have a MLNO at DLA that oversees and monitors the streamer ordering process who constantly tracks each order as they come in.

My Unit does not have a Supply Section, how do I determine the SuppAdd, Sig Code, Fund Code, Priority, RDD and Adv Code?

  •  See DLM 4000.25-1, MILSTRP Guidance; and contact DLA MLNO POC for further inquiries.
