Medal/Ribbon questions
#1

Hello to the forum,

 

All of you have been so helpful with my inquiries over the years that I am back for a little more help. I just received a copy of my great uncles military file. In hopes to complete the family medals display case I am making I have a question or two to ask about him. He was in the Navy. In his file it states that he was authorized to wear the Philippine Liberation Ribbon and the Asiatic Pacific Campaign Ribbon but it says nothing of the medals that go with them. Do the ribbons ever get issued without the medals? I don't want to put them in or leave them out of the case depending on the situation.

 

Thank you again for the help,

 

Dan

Here's another one for you. Was there a difference between the color of the Honorable Discharge Emblems (khaki or olive drab)? Are they different because of uniform or service you were in (Army/Navy, etc.)? I want to get a replacement for someone. It was issued to him for his Navy service during the war and I want to be sure I get the correct one.

 

Thanks,

 

Dan
