    The one on the other side looks like 63rd Infantry Division.

    The flaming grenade on his lapel screams Artillery or Engineers to us, but for US it's Ordnance branch.

    I know virtually nothing, but to help things along...

    Ribbon bar (L-R): Army Good Conduct Medal; American Campaign Medal; possibly the European/African/Middle Eastern medal with 2 stars (2 theatres/campaigns)?.

    Edit: but, no Victory Medal? I genuinely have no idea, but for some reason I'd expect a WW2 set (if it is) of medals to include one. A bit out of my depth, alas. An expert will come along shortly, hopefully.

    Offered with the same caveats above of having no real knowledge, but some books.
