His current unit was XVth Corps, as a member of the Army Reserves. During WW2, he served in the Pacific/Philippines as part of the IXth Corps. The Army Aviator wing is not unusual.. No doubt went to flight school while in the Reserves (based on the Army Reserve Ribbon, he spent at least 10 years in the Army Reserves).
Unusual a state-side LTC would have such sloppy ribbon bars (i.e. individually pinned on, not on 3 place slider-on bars), but the ribbons he has totally make sense (and I don't think it's a "put together"). I also initially wondered why he didn't have a National Defense Ribbon, but apparently after WW2, he didn't see Federal Service during the time he could have qualified for that medal.

No problem. I think it's as-worn in the late 1950's or so.
