Medal and ribbon devices

It might be an odd topic, but I've been working through a bit of a backlog in my collection and was curious about some of the devices on my ribbon bars. They don't seem marked and I haven't seen...

Hi, I'm very new here, but I've been scooping up militaria since I was a kid, over twenty-five years now. It was naturally U.S. mostly with a few outliers and a growing collection of Canadian cap...
