The following are the steps I used to add Military Ribbons to my veterans pages

Military Ribbons media type

1 - Create new Military Ribbons media type

The image on the right shows how I setup the Military Ribbons media type (rack collection) on my site
See Media Types - Adding new for step by step instructions.

2 - Generate the Military Ribbon rack at Ultimate Rack

See my step by step instructions in UltimateRack

3 - Add created Military Ribbon rack image to your Media >> Military Ribbons collection.

See my step by step instructions in Media - Add New

4 - Copy generated <map from

<map name="rack" id="rack">
<area shape="rect" coords="214,32,319,62" href="#" onMouseout="hideTip()" onMouseover="doTooltip(event,'World War II Victory Medal')" />
<area shape="rect" coords="107,32,212,62" href="#" onMouseout="hideTip()" onMouseover="doTooltip(event,'European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal')" />
<area shape="rect" coords="0,32,105,62" href="#" onMouseout="hideTip()" onMouseover="doTooltip(event,'American Campaign Medal')" />
<area shape="rect" coords="107,0,212,30" href="#" onMouseout="hideTip()" onMouseover="doTooltip(event,'Purple Heart')" />
>> eliminate the <map and </map statements
and replace
href="#" onMouseout="hideTip()" onMouseover="doTooltip(event,
nohref onmouseout="hideddrivetip()" onmouseover="ddrivetip('
then replace
to alternate the color of the popup box,
so the end result is
<area shape="rect" coords="214,32,319,62" nohref onmouseout="hideddrivetip()" 
onmouseover="ddrivetip('World War II Victory Medal','lightgreen')" />
<area shape="rect" coords="107,32,212,62" nohref onmouseout="hideddrivetip()" 
onmouseover="ddrivetip('European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal','lightblue')" />
<area shape="rect" coords="0,32,105,62" nohref onmouseout="hideddrivetip()" 
onmouseover="ddrivetip('American Campaign Medal','lightgreen')" />
<area shape="rect" coords="107,0,212,30" nohref onmouseout="hideddrivetip()" 
onmouseover="ddrivetip('Purple Heart','lightblue')" />

5 - Copy and Paste the edited <area map to the TNG Image Map section of your added Military Ribbons record.

6 - link the Military Ribbon created to the person ID and Military Service event for the veteran
