Default WWII Medals / others?

Can anyone identify these medals? My fiancée is a real estate agent and believe it or not the family of the deceased owners of a house that she sold did not want these medals. It makes me both furious and sick to my stomach but that’s the case. I sure as heck wasn’t going to let them get tossed out so I grabbed them up.

He was born in 1918. He spent a full career in the military, first in the USAAF, then the USAF. He was a flier although I’m not sure if he was a pilot or a NAV, etc. He retired as a LTC. We have bits and pieces of his career but I believe he was in WWII, Korea and Vietnam.

I was hoping to get some insight into these claims from these awards.

Can anyone ID any or all of them?

Here come the pics

Back on that first pic, those first two look like an Arcomm (Army Commendation) and Good Conduct Medal-Red one

That next to last one looks like a National Defense Ribbon The red one with the yellow stripe.

The rest could be campaign medals where ever he may have served
