A note to "Medal Collectors and Enthusiasts"

The Patton Society has not included the World War II Germany Occupation Medal in this collection on purpose. The medal was not created and authorized until 1946, by which time General Patton was buried in Luxembourg. Since Patton neither received nor wore the medal or its ribbon, we decided to preclude it from this page. General Patton was a stickler for displaying only those ribbons authorized for wear.
