I'm not used to seeing these on WWII era uniforms.

A close reading of WWII rules for the Army GCM make it pretty clear that not many GI's would have qualified for more than one award "during the war" (however defined.) Not impossible, given the right individual circumstances, but tough to do.

This 12th AF vet was awarded the GCM two times.
He joined the army before the war started.
