    Almost all of the patches you can identify by 'Googleing' WWII US shoulder patches.
    - Here is one of the better pages I've found:

    Division insignia of the United States Army - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I only know the 'US Army Commendation Medal' (center) and the
    'US WWII Victory Medal' on the ribbon bar.........
    Regards,

    To KMMorris: I was under the impression members of this site liked posts where they could share their knowledge. At least that's been my experience with this great site up until now. I by no means was trying to avoid researching these items. I find that I need a head start with doing the research and then I go off and do my own. I'm new at collecting for only about 2 years so I don't know much about anything. I just know I love the history behind older military items. And I find this site wonderful because I get to learn new things every week. I guess some members find it insulting? who knew..

    I think the blue and white one (looks like the Chrysler logo) in the bottom right is US Army V Corps.

    Although I did make the 'suggestion' of self research, I did not intend to be harsh
    or offensive, and I apologize if I came across that way. There are so many other
    US patches that WWII US SSI (shoulder sleeve insignia) patch ID is rather
    simple - but it all takes time to learn.

    Today thankfully, the internet provides answers to so many things
    with the push of a key, where in the past it took even more
    time and effort, as well as a keen interest.

    I see no harm in asking, and I would never want to discourage
    anyone from entering the hobby or furthering their
    knowledge of militaria.........
