    Thanks for the reply but I'm not sure what you mean by left to right. They show up top to bottom.

    The last photo is the ribbon bar of the 'Asian-Pacific Campaign Medal'.

    In the second photo, the yellow ribbon in the center of the bar
    is for the 'American Defense Medal'.

    ( SteveR, the 'National Defense Medal' came later - 1953 )
