    Center is Air Force Commendation Medal - top 4 are Vietnam Campaign Medal, Air Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, and Vietnam Cross of Gallantry; bottom two are the Bronze Star and Purple Heart.

    I've identified all of the badges on the leather strip except this one. @DragonflyWink do you recognize this? PhotoPictureResizer_190521_092122587-1603x2137.jpg

    INH with her magical search skills found it. My late brother was a Vietnam Vet, though regular Army, so I recognized all but the Air Force Commendation (he had Air Medals because he crewed on Hueys).
