    Great looking medal, there is also a Navy/Marine Corps version and the 2 authorized clasps were Asia and Europe..

    For the Army Occupation medal the authorized Bars were Germany or Japan..

    I have also seen some Army veterans that were on Occupation Duty in Japan, take the medal pendant and reverse it so that Mt Fujiyama was on the front of the medal and the Abutments of the Remagen Bridge were on the back..

    Thanks for the reply Smitty! I have also seen an example with a device to indicate participation in the Berlin airlift.
