The 3rd ribbon is for the Purple heart. So he must have been wounded at some point.

The stripes are for 3 years overseas duty (6 months each bar) what is odd is that he doesn't have an Asiatic theater ribbon.

Great looking tunic. any chance of a name in any pf the pockets?

Beautiful "Blouse" I think it is correctly called. That bullion CBI patch is outstanding. The absence of any theater ribbon may just be due to that fact the ribbon bar is a pin on, or so it appears and the theater ribbon is somewhere else?

I know this is WAAAAAY late-BUT- I believe the 3rd ribbon may be the Legion of Merit.

Distinguished Flying Cross, Air Medal, Purple Heart, American Defense Service, I think. The ribbons should be worn from the left high to low. The Legion of Merit would be higher then the DFC, so you would think that would make the 3rd ribbon the Purple Heart because it's comes after the DFC. On the other hand the PH should come before the Air Medal so maybe somebody rearranged the ribbons. I still think the 3rd ribbon is the PH even though the color looks more like the LoM due to the wider white stripes. Now who's on first?
