Each military branch will be slightly different; the US Army alone has over 60 medals (we always wear the ribbons in place of the medals-more practical/most veterans place the medals themselves in a display case). See AR 670-2 (Army Regulations) and/or go to: US Military Ribbon/Medal Order of Display and Wear.
