WWI Occupation Medal
The Army of Occupation of Germany Medal was established by Act of Congress of November 21, 1941. It is awarded to armed forces personnel, or to the nearest surviving kin, who served in Germany or Austria-Hungary from November 12, 1918 to July 11, 1923.
The issuance of the World War I Victory Medal established another precedent, that of wearing clasps with the names of individual battles on the suspension ribbon of a general campaign medal. When the ribbon bar alone was worn, each clasp was represented by a small (3/16" diameter) bronze star.
