Veteran is my wife’s second cousin. I was able to research the meaning for most of the ribbons. Bonnie Henning, Program Analyst, The Institute of Heraldry also helped me, and suggested I contact your Society for additional help. Neither of us identified the meaning of the four stars on the top left ribbon; or what the bottom right ribbon represents. We all would appreciate someone’s assistance.
The lower right ribbon is the World War I Occupation Medal. These often mistakenly show up in World War II groups because of the similarity of names and the fact that the WWII Occupation Medal ribbons may not have been available when the vet bought his ribbons.
