here's another Ike worn during the early occupation period. Note the hand-painted DI's and the enameled on metal ribbons! Needless, to say, these are quite uncommon.


Here's an intereting ribbon bar. The individual ribbons are made of colored embroidery thread -- similar work is done in the Far East today.

The DI's are for the 3rd Infantry. The right side sleeve is for the 106th ID. The 3rd replace one of the regiments that surrendered during the Battle of the Bulge.
The 3rd did not see enough combat later to qualify for the CIB.

And finally, at least for today, here is an German occupation ribbon bar. The bar itself is domed (?) plastic with a brass backing. The insignia, both DI and collar, is for 6th Infantry -- Berlin Brigade.

Here is the ribbon set of a 45th Div Medic. The Ike is custom made in Kansas City-- the DI's are German-made and hand painted. I am not sure why the COmbat Medic Badge is on the pocket flap and not above the ribbons.

Say Gil, isn't that a 36th Division "T" patch on the left shoulder?
Nice looking uniform ! http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif

Here is a large air-force rack that I received with a huge lot of ribbon bars. Can anyone ID the lower middle ribbon? It is light blue in color and has a circular medallion with the likeness of a soldier in the center.

That is a Venuzuela ribbon. I will get back to you on exactly what it is. I have to look it up in my collection of Ven. ribbons

Just curious, where are they made in the Far East now? I haven't seen them.

Well boys I am impresed by many of them fruit salads. But I cannot lie, I dont have a bar worth showing off, just a basic WW2 Euro theatre and my CAP ribbons. But I do have a story for you all. Last summer right after church got out and I walked out the door and I was walking out in the grass, I looked down to scan the ground, might find a penny or two you know. Well I looked down and say what appeared to be a ribbon, so I bent over and picked it up. Sure enough, a purple heart ribbon with two oak leaf clasps, I thought well I should keep this then said no, who ever lost this must miss it, as the clasps were well worn and you could see it had been marched many miles. So I walked in the church up to pastor and said "Pastor do we have any purple heart veterans of this church?" and he said that we do, and as a matter of a fact a member that just passed won 3 purple hearts in the Army Air Corp in WW2. So I said then this is probably his and haned him the ribbon and he looked at it and exclaimed and asked where I found it and I told him. Well he walked over to the widow and gave it to her and she smiled and thanked us both. A month or two passed and I walked up to her one day and greeted her in the usual way people do and made conversation, ten it dawned on me to ask her about it, turns out it wasn't her recently deceased husband's but rather her son's purple heart ribbon who earned 3 purple hearts in Vietnam. You see when they had his funeral at the church they had many veterans and active duty military in dress uniforms, and anyone that has wore ribbons know that sometimes they fall off. But what are the odds of that working the way it did, and not only that but both father and son earning 3 purple hearts each. I hope you all have enjoyed my story as much as I enjoyed the fruit salads, I guarentee that story is 100 percent genuine with nothing made up.
