the blue or white service coat. On other uniforms, attach  the  bar  in  the  same  relative  position. Wear  up  to  five  miniatures  on  one  holding bar.  When  wearing  more  than  five,  arrange  in  two or  more  rows  as  shown  in  figure  9-18. Service  Ribbons Wear   service   ribbons   in   their   order   of precedence  (from  top  down  and  from  inboard  to outboard) with all service dress uniforms. Allow no intervals between ribbons or rows of ribbons. Do  not  impregnate  with  preservatives  that  change their  appearance  or  wear  with  transparent  covers. On  uniforms,  center  the  lower  edge  of  the bottom  row  of  ribbons  approximately  1/4  inch above  the  left  breast  pocket. Wear  three  ribbons  or  less  in  a  single horizontal  row.  When  authorized  to  wear  three or  more  ribbons,  wear  them  in  rows  of  three each.  If  not  in  multiples  of  three,  place  the lesser  number  in  the  uppermost  row  and  center over  the  row  beneath.  If  you  possess  three  or more,  wear  a  minimum  of  three;  you  may  wear all if desired. Attachments A  variety  of  stars,  devices,  and  clasps  are authorized for wear on the suspension ribbons of medals  and  service  ribbons. STARS. —Stars are made of gold, bronze, or silver.  You  wear  them  as  follows: Wear  a  gold  star  instead  of  a  second  or subsequent  award  of  a  military  decoration,  except for  the  air  medal. Wear a 3/16-inch bronze star for the second, third, and fourth award of a campaign or service medal. Wear  a  silver  star  instead  of  five  gold  or bronze  stars,  except  for  the  air  medal. Center a single star on the ribbon. If wearing more  than  one  star,  place  them  in  a  horizontal line close to and symmetrically about the center of the ribbon. Locate the silver star as near the center of the ribbon as symmetry permits. When wearing a star in addition to a silver star or letter device,  wear  on  your  right.  Wear  a  second  star to  your  left,  and  so  on.  When  medals  overlap, you  may  wear  all  stars  to  your  left.  Place  stars on  the  ribbon  with  two  rays  pointing  down. LETTER   DEVICES.   —Wear   metal   letter devices,  when  authorized,  centered  on  the appropriate   ribbon. Individuals   awarded   the   Legion   of   Merit, Bronze Star Medal, Joint Service Commendation Medal,   Navy   Achievement   Medal,   or   the Commendation   Medal   for   acts   or   services involving  direct  participation  in  combat  opera- tions  may  be  authorized  to  wear  a  bronze letter V. Personnel  who  qualify  may  wear  the  bronze S on  the  medal,  signifying  their  qualification  as a sharpshooter, or the bronze  E, signifying  their expertise, on their Pistol or Rifle Marksmanship medals  and  ribbons,  as  appropriate.  They  wear a silver  E upon  qualifying  for  the  third  E. CLASPS.  —Wear  clasps,  when  authorized, only  on  suspension  ribbons  of  large  medals. However, you may display stars or other devices worn instead of clasps on the suspension ribbons of  miniature  medals  and  on  ribbon  bars. Miscellaneous Devices The  following  miscellaneous  devices  are  also authorized  for  wear  on  the  naval  uniform: Fleet   Marine   Force   Combat   Operations Insignia:   Beginning  with  World  War  II,  Navy personnel  who  have  been  attached  to  Fleet  Marine Force units in active combat with an armed enemy may  wear  a  bronze  miniature  Marine  Corps emblem with the appropriate  World War II Area Campaign Medal, Korean Service Ribbon, Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, and Vietnam Service Medal. Hour  Glass:  Naval   Reserve   personnel   may wear  this  device  instead  of  a  second  or  subsequent Armed Forces Reserve Medal  for each succeeding 10 years of service. (The device is a representation of  an  hourglass  superimposed  with  the  reman numeral   X.) Antarctica  Wintered  Over  Disk:  This   device consists of a bronze disk inscribed with an outline of  the  Antarctic  Continent.  You  may  wear  it  on the suspension ribbons of the miniature  Antarctica Service  Medal  and  on  the  corresponding  ribbon bar (wear a  Wintered  Over  clasp  with  the  large medal). 9-25
