Here's a small part of what wiki says about the Unit:
"The Ohio Military Reserve (OHMR) is a military force which supports the State of Ohio along with the Ohio Army National Guard and Ohio Air National Guard in times of natural disaster and state and national emergencies."
So why WOULDN'T they issue medals? Or better, why COULDN'T they? Maybe someone who actually knows about, or belongs to that Military Unit can tell us about it.
