Description
A gold color metal and enamel device 1 1/8 inches (2.86 cm) in width overall consisting of six radiating gold spears issuing from behind the apex of a red chevron surmounted at the base on either side by three gold spears and all enclosed by a continuous blue scroll of three folds, looped from the base on each side and arched at the center and inscribed “SUPPORT FOR COMBAT” in gold letters.
