Found a bit more info that may tie the mystery WW1 and VFW medals together for a WW 2 vet like your grandfather. The conventional wisdom often expressed is that this ribbon was presented to returning veterans of WWII in recognition of their service by such organizations as VFW or American Legion and otherwise its exact identity is a mystery. I spoke with a couple of my uncles who are VFW members, and they remember these being awarded as place-keepers by by the local VFW.
