It consists of a "V" and is constructed of gold (Service in France) silver (Service in the U.S.) or powder blue (Less than 6 months of service). Each of the metallic overseas chevrons stands for 6 months. A full term veteran would have 4 overseas chevrons. A veteran would be entitled to two gold service chevrons if he had been shipped to France in the spring of 1918 and remained until the spring or summer of 1919 (Army of Occupation). This photograph is c1918-20.
