Vietnam era Ribbon bars

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I just recently picked up two ribbon bars at the swap meet by my house. There may not be a lot of ribbon bars on the rack per se, but sometimes small racks tell big stories. Judging by the appurtenances on the ribbons, the original owner of this rack(unfortunately, no ID when I asked) saw a decent amount of action during the war (43 air medals with at least one conflict against an enemy ("V" device), a bronze star, an army commendation, and 2 DFC's). What do you guys think?

Army chopper pilot with multiple tours in Vietnam would be my guess.

I agree except this could have also been done in one tour.
