If the number of authorized oak leaf clusters exceeds four and will not fit on a single ribbon, what will happen?
A second ribbon is authorized for wear. When the second ribbon is worn, it is placed dafter the first ribbon; the second ribbon counts as one award. Personnel may wear no more than four oak leaf clusters on each ribbon. If the receipt of future awards reduces the number of oak leaf clusters sufficiently (that is, a silver oak leaf for five awards), personnel will remove the second ribbon and place the appropriate number of devices on a single ribbon.
