I don't believe that there was any device or other way of recognizing that a soldier served on occupation duty in more than one of the occupied countries although it certainly happened and some soldiers actually wore the "Japan" or "Germany" clasp, authorized only for the medal, on the ribbon too. Post #4 under the following topic shows an example of this: http://www.usmilitar...showtopic=32359
Maybe some soldiers wore two ribbons, each facing a different direction, to depict this, but that would not have been authorized either.

Sean, that seems to be an explanation I was looking for.
