What do the National Archives Records Center.com say about his service? You have sent for a copy of the service record?

The chevrons indicate the type worn 1955-2007ish as they are gold on green background. Not a WWII item. The ribbon to the right in the photo appears to be an Army Good Conduct Medal. This ribbon is most likely a service/campaign, state, or foreign award.

WWII ERA ribbons fade in all kinds of funky colors. It is a long shot, but if it were red with thre green stripes symmetrically on each side, it could be a Belgian Croix de Guerrero. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belgian_Croix_de_guerre

I can tell you it is not a WWII campaign Medal: asiatic-pacific, Africa, American campaign, etc as there are no center stripes or the three sets of stripes do not align with others.

There is a high likelihood the ribbon rack is upside down.

MSG Gary Eckert I believe the ribbon rack is upside down. I didn’t really see anything else it could be other than a WWII era faded Belgian Croix de Guerre unless it’s some funky state things that’s no longer used. State decorations that have these stripes are white and either have stripes centered or stars printed on.

SFC (Join to see) - are you looking at the WWI Croix de Guerre or the WWII Croix de Guerre? The WWI does not match that pattern, but the WWII one does.

SFC (Join to see) - not if it faded to that color. I know the serviceable ribbon is red with symmetrical green stripes. But if I try fades to that tan color and the stripes fade you could end up with that.

Possible Nevada National Guard Recruiting Ribbon. It's the only one I found that comes close.
