Got this 8x11 photo of a US Command pilot and his gal today.  What intrigued me was the wings above his right breast pocket. Can you id? Looks like the wings have a tri colored shield in the middle.

 

His ribbons are screwed up. The top row should be flipped and put the ARCOM (my left, his right). Then there is a ribbon on the bottom right. It's just two colors (half n half). Any idea what it represents?

 

This guy is a Colonel and he should have known how to put his ribbons on correctly. Maybe he was looking down and they looked right from that angle.

To me, it looks like the top row of ribbons might be American Campaign, American Defense, Commendation ribbon with olc. The bottom row looks like PTO, WWII Victory, Philippine Liberation. As for the foreign wing, maybe Thailand? There isn't a whole lot of detail to the photo when it is enlarged.
