Armed Forces / Re: Help identifying Badges on US Army Uniform

Hi
Thanks for the extra information re the uniform. This relatives name is Donald Foster Stevenson and yes I have downloaded his service record. As with so many guys he was underage when he enlisted and at some point this was discovered and he was sent back to the UK and spent most of the time with the Canadian Army Medical Corps. I also have what there is of his US Army service record. Not a lot really due to the loss of so many US records. I put his casual army service record down as being in 4th Air Obs Squadron but it should have been 4th Squadron (Observation). I haven't done too much research on this but have been told they did built airfields specifically Wheeler Field.
It is possible the third ribbon could be to do with his casual service. I will have to dig around the internet a bit more. As you said this photo is after 1927 as that is also when he joined the 7th.
Thanks for your input

Thanks Rockford and Phillip

I have checked out the website and yes I agree with you on the badge. I have had my magnifying glass out and the marksman qualification badge fits. Before WW1 I know he was in some sort of rifles group so imagine he may have used this skill later on and the clasp relates to that.

Yes, this guy received the British War Medal and the Victory medal. He didn't go to France until Aug 1916. Perhaps we won't ever know what the third ribbon is for unless I can trace a closer relative who knows a little more.
Many thanks

Armed Forces / Help identifying Badges on US Army Uniform

Hi
Hope someone can help with this query. I have attached a photo of my relative who was in the
7th US Infantry Regiment between 1927 - 1936. Prior to that he was a casual with US army in the 4th Air Obs squadron in Hawaii from 1924-1927. He also served in WW1 with the Canadian Army from 1915 - 1919 in the 54th Battalion and the Canadian Army Medical Corp so I am not sure what the badges and ribbons refer to. I am particularly interested in the badge below the ribbons that appear to have a couple of clasps. Please excuse the terminology if it is incorrect. I am afraid I am a bit of a novice with ribbons and badges so any help would be good.
Hope this information will help.
Many thanks in advance.
