The V Device is an attachment used in the military to be mounted on a medal or ribbon bar. This unmounted attachment comes in a gold finish and is for full size medal or ribbon bar. The design can be easily added to your service ribbon and will securely stay in place. This would be a great addition to a shadow box after service is completed to display your service. The V stands for Valor and is worn when someone has earned valor in their work. The way of distinguishing this is based on valor in direct combat or won based on merit in non-combat conditions. The V Device (unmounted) is made and designed in the USA.
