No, not for money, help identifying this military ribbon. Army or Navy, should be WWII era.

It looks like a lapel pin for a service flag. Each star represents a child in the service at one time. Given to parents, usually the mother, to wear. If you google "service flag" you'll find more info on it.
I checked other sites for ribbons and such and couldn't find anything that looks like your pic.
Have a good one

They had similar cloth pennants to hang in the front window of the parent's homes.
I remember my mother's mother had one for my uncle who served on a mine-sweeperduring the invasions of North Africa, Sicily, Solerno, Anzio and finally Normandy.

He was a kid at the time and I dont recall mention of any cousins killed though some were in combat. One I recall was a BAR-man - big/strong enough (relatives in the midwest, farm country) to handle a BAR.
