One of the guys who comes in all the time and hits as many state sales as anyone I have ever known, showed up with this Monday.

 

Out of a small USMC bring back grouping.

 

There is either one helluva great story about this soldier and the Marine just picked it up at the end of the war. Either way it is cool.....

Did it come from an officer like that?

It came out of a US Marine's estate.

Did he get it from the officer like that or was it put together? Because the ribbons are not in order and are just mixed up randomly.

Interesting ribbon bar.. I have no knowledge of Japanese ribbons but the bottom ribbon, 2nd from the right ( yellow, blue, white with red center, white, blue, yellow) looks exactly like the Army Reserve Components Achievement Medal ribbon..

It is the Inner Mongolia National Foundation Merit Medal. Neat how it is very close to the Army Reserve ribbon in style.

I agree they are not in order.

 

Can't ask the Marine as he is dead as it came out of his estate sale.
