Help identifying Ribbons on a Rack

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Colorizing a photo of my relative who served in the USAAF and USAF from WWII until the early 1970s. Need assistance identifying the Medal Ribbon bars in his retirement photo.

 

Thanks,

Looking for:

First World War 339th Infantry Regiment Uniforms

First World War and Interwar Austrian Uniforms, Insignia, and the like

Second World War Sicilian Campaign Named Uniforms (3rd and 45th Infantry Divisions)

Second World War Italian Army Uniforms (4th Infantry Livorno and 12th Infantry Sassari Divisions)

Do you have a better quality view of just the rack, perchance?

If you ever want a custom hand-embroidered (no machine) patch, I'm open to commissions! Pay or trade!

Looking for Old-Style US Coast Guard Commendation Medal (w/ or w/o ribbon)!

Oh, tarry and be strong; Tell God in prayer. What is thy hidden grief; Thy secret care.

Yet, if no answer come; Pray on and wait: God's time is always best; Never too late.

Don't need one.

 

Bottom Row, left to right: AF Longevity Service w/silver and bronze oak leaf clusters, Armed Forces Reserve Medal, and Small Arms Expert Marksman Ribbon.

Second Row, left to right: WW II Victory, Army of Occupation, and National Defense Service Medal with oak leaf cluster.

Third Row, left to right: EAME Campaign Medal with one or two service/campaign stars, American Theater Campaign Medal, and Asiatic Pacific Campaign Medal.

Fourth Row, left to right: Presidential Unit Citation, AF Outstanding Unit Award and Army Good Conduct.

Fifth Row, left to right: Air Medal, Combat Readiness Medal, and AF Commendation Medal.

Sixth Row, centered: Distinguished Flying Cross.

 

The good colonel was a highly decorated command pilot, did at least four years in a SAC or ADC combat readiness role, served during Korea and Vietnam, held a Reserve Commission and probably was an Aviation Cadet upon entry into the Army Air Forces in WW II.
