1919 issue of "Rewards for Service - United States Army - Insignia & Other Information" on page 9, there was on the lower half of the page some really interesting stuff about what to wear in the button-hole of the lapel of the men's civilian suit such as enameled service ribbon bars and a bronze or silver coloured star with a wreath around it with the letters "US" centered on the star to show honourably discharged veterans, broze for regular and silver for those wounded in conbat at the Western Front in France. There are illustrations of a soldier showing how and where to place the wound chevron(s) and service stripes for each 6 months and where to wear the red chevron on the upper left sleeve showing a soldier was discharged and on their way home. Enjoy!
