Military History/V device worn on PUC



I read that the "V" device was authorized to be worn on the Distinguished Unit Citation/PUC for WW II veterans on a site and had never seen that before.  Is that correct?  I have never seen a PUC worn with the "V" device, only Oak Leaf clusters for additional awards.  



Hi Terry

Thanks for the question.

While outside my expertise I did a little research.

According to AR 670-1 the "V" device should NOT be worn with a DUC/PUC. See Table 29-1 (pg 276) Authority for Wear-U.S unit award citations and Section 29-12 (pg 278) Wear of Appurtenances, Subsection 2 Paragraph b.


I hope this helps.

I can answer most specific questions regarding the war on the Eastern Front 1941-45 and general questions on WWII regarding the European Theatre of Operations. I can answer most questions on weapons and vehicles used in those areas of operation, Russian, German, Allied. I can also answer questions on contemporary weapon systems (land/sea/air), nuclear weapons and nuclear war fighting, biological and chemical warfare. I also have an interest in epidemiology and disease in history and Russian history during Stalin, specifically the GuLags. I cannot answer any more questions relating to discharge papers or other paperwork, obtaining military records, ranks and their comparisons, military duties etc. as there are outside my expertise.
