Some more - had to go to my old photos to get these ones!

 

1st - Custom done ribbon bars for an USAF officer. I like how he had BOTH Occupation ribbons (Germany and Japan) on his bars!

I really liked this uniform - this one was one of those uniforms you later regret selling. While the ribbons weren't terribly significant, all insignia on the uniform was bullion. Dang, that was one sweet uniform!

Ribbon bar set to Chaplain John K. Borneman ( Brig Gen RET ) . He was the Chaplain of the 60th Coast Artillery on Corregidor and was captured and taken POW when the Philippines fell. He was liberated by the 6th Army Rangers at Cabanatuan " THE GREAT RAID " . He was one of the most highly decorated Chaplains during WWII.

 

The insignia is his as well. The crosses are pinback sterling .
