Army of Occupation Medal
With Germany Clasp and Ribbon Set

This Army decoration was created in 1946. It was awarded for service at a normal post of duty while assigned to the Army of Occupation beginning with the first day after the end of World War II.

Dates of eligibility include any consecutive 30 days from 9 May 1945 and 5 May 1955. Because Audie Murphy remained in Germany until June 10, 1945 he therefore met this requirement.

Soldiers who served in the Army of Occupation between 9 May and 8 November 1945 were also required to have earned the European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal to qualify for this award. Audie Murphy met this requirement too.

A brass clasp with the name "Germany" inscribed was authorized to be worn over the cloth above the medal.
