In US military, first award of a decoration is the ribbon (and medal) itself. Additional awards are reflected by the addition of an oak leaf cluster on the ribbon. When the sixth award of the medal occurs, the four oak leaf clusters on the ribbon are replaced with a silver oak leaf cluster, denoting 5 additional awards of the medal.
