    Hoping someone has time for a little design “protocol” assistance. Customer just received father’s military medals from National Personnel Records Center and wants shadowbox, you guessed it, in time for Christmas. Would appreciate advice if anyone knows off-hand how the ribbons should be displayed. (I know there are poster & printed resources available, but doubt I have time to obtain those & complete the project before Christmas.)

    Planning suede mats & shadowbox moulding to display the following items:
    4x6 B/W photo
    dogtag w/o chain
    (2) Sleeve patches (3 stripes)
    Bronze Star Medal
    Good Conduct Medal
    American Defense Service Medal
    Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal
    WWII Victory Medal
    Combat Infantryman Badge, 1st award
    Honorable Service Lapel Button WWII
    Marksman Badge with Rifle Bar

    All of the Medals are “standard size” (~ 1 ½” x 3”) and also have the small ribbon bar; Should both the Medal & the “bar” be included, or do you just use one or the other?

    Advice & suggestions welcomed & appreciated!

    The combat Infantry badge is usually above the ribbons on a separate line.

    The other items are framers choice as to position.
