OcMedalGerWW1: Army of Occupation of Germany Medal   Förenta staterna (USA)

Instiftad år: 1941 Valör: Brons
Ytterligare information:
The medal is retroactive by design and is awarded to any service member who performed occupation garrison duty in either Germany, or the former Austria-Hungary, between the dates of November 12, 1918 and July 11, 1923. The medal was primarily created due to the rising tension with Germany, between 1939 and 1941, and also as a means to honor the World War I service of General of the Armies John J. Pershing, whose likeness appears on the actual medal. Initially the blue edge was wavy, to signify the Rhine River, but that proved impractical to mass produce and was changed to a straight line.
