    They are certainly not fake, but they are newer restrikes. The army of occupation medal is not WWII era. The crimped brooch is the dead giveaway on that. I don't know exactly when the crimped style started offhand but that type was not used until possibly the VN era. Off the top of my head, I would say they were very recently made. You can get ones like this from www.medalsofamerica.com

    The middle medal is the UN
    Mission in Haiti (UNMIH) 1990's - 2000.
