    Various medals at my grandmothers house in a little box. I have had relatives that served in WW2 and Korea. Can anyone identify these medals and the significance of them?

      I can ID some of it.

      Castle is an Engineer Officer branch insignia (US Army).
      Ribbon above the castle (and on ribbon bar) is a National Defense Service Medal.
      Ribbon above that is the Republic of Korea Presidential Unit Citation.

      On the ribbon bar, the blue ribbon is a Presidential Unit Citation.
      Ribbon in the center is the Air Force Outstanding Unit Award.

      Small lapel pin is the Honorable Service lapel pin, known as the "ruptured duck". It was given for WW2 service.

      Loose ribbon on the right is the American Defense Service Medal ribbon. It was for WW2 service as well.

      One of the things I love about CW.
      Most of the time someone knows something about your item and kindly shares their knowledge. Nicely done Scottvez!
      Nice post as well!

      Wow, Scott-that is awesome!! Thank you so much for taking the time to write that and letting me know. I really appreciate it :)

      Glad to help out-- if you are interested in more specifics on each ribbon-- an online search under the "title" of each ribbon/ medal will provide more.
