Newest Ribbon Bar

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


Last night I celebrated a two year anniversary of dating with my girlfriend (in this day and age that's a long time!). We exchanged small gifts and she really surprised me with this one. For whatever reason I ended up showing it to her on eBay, it was a BIN offer, and shortly after showing it to her I noticed it had ended, to my disappointment. She's not too enthusiastic about the hobby 99% of the time, so I was impressed with this gift.


Without anymore rambling, here it is, a nice Korean War set of ribbons with a Fleet Marine Force device. Can anyone tell me what kind of occupations the wearer of these might of had? I know the device signifies Navy personnel attached to a Marine unit, like a corpsman, but are there any other jobs that this could be? Radioman? Thanks for the help, let me know what you think.



Sorry it's a little bright..

Interested in buying identified or re-searchable Korean War uniforms, groupings, medals and more.

I believe Seabees were authorized the device as well.
