Hi,

The BRONZE OAK LEAF CLUSTER (OLC) is worn for the second and subsequent awards of the same medal (usually Army, Air Force, and Defense awards) to a maximum of four.

The SILVER OAK LEAF CLUSTER is worn in the same manner as the Bronze Oak Leaf Cluster in lieu of 5 awards.

Hope it helps.

Dan.

This area is where posts from the general Medals & Decorations "discussion section" (http://www.usmilitar.....?showforum=83) are moved for permanent retention and education about the history of the various U.S. medals and military decorations.

As time moves forward, some of these posts may have additional information added to them by the moderators of this section. We ask for your input as well, especially in the correction of any erroneous information that may have inadvertently be posted..

We encourage further comments about this post and its content. In order to do so, you will need to start a new post in the general Medals & Decorations "discussion section" (here: http://www.usmilitar.....?showforum=83). And, as needed, we will be pleased to move any new and / or valued information that is derived from your post (and subsequent comments) into this reference area as its own standing post.

Please be advised: posting and / or editing is restricted on this post to moderator's and forum staff.
