Unidentified Medals/Ribbons Awarded to Col. Lawrence R. Anderson (Ret).
June 12, 1915-July 27, 2006
I am trying to identify the medals/ribbons my Grandfather was awarded during his army service in the Corp of Engineers and Transportation Corps. I have identified most of them, but some I cannot. Below are some medals I am trying to identify.
Number One- This is a legion of Merit Award, but I am not sure what the blue ribbon signifies. Any ideas?
Number Two: I think this is an Army Commendation Medal, but it is tealish and not green so I'm not sure (maybe it bleached or something).
Number Three: I have no idea.
Number 4: I just wanted to know what to call this one. It is from my Grandfather's ROTC at Iowa State (I think in 1939)
Number 5: I wanted to know what to call this and what the two medals signify. The words read Korean War Veteran on the right.
Here are ones I am pretty sure I identified correctly, but let me know if I am wrong:
American Defense Medal: National Defense Service Medal:
Republic of Korea War Service Medal: World War II Victory Medal:
United Nations Service Medal Korea:
