    My dads WWII ribbons

    Greetings,
    I am honored to be here. Asking for help identifying the ribbons my dad earned in WWII. It may help to know he was an LST pilot and saw combat in all the major Pacific campaigns (Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, etc) with his last duty being with the A-bomb on Tinian. Searches have shown that his ribbons in the pic are~
    left-right
    TOP ROW-WWII Victory Medal, Asia Pacific Medal, American Theater Ribbon
    SECOND ROW-Marine Good Conduct Medal, Presidential Citation Medal, Philippine Presidential Unit Citation
    LAST ROW-Navy Expedition Medal & Navy Presidential Unit Citation.
    Just curious if any of you can confirm or correct.
    Many thanks, god bless you all, the USA and Chesty Puller.
