One big takeaway to differentiate the two, the planchettes thickness between the three branches. The USN/USMC planchette is significantly thicker than the army version which was relatively thin. If you have a copy of "The Call of Duty" on page 166 it shows the comparisons of the Bronze Star Medal which fell under the same circumstances.
