I think i got it figured out but asking to be sure! I have 8 AAM's if I got it figured out right I wear the ribbon, 1 silver oak leave and 2 bronze oak leave clusters. Is this right. I know being a Sergeant and being in for 9 years I should know this but being in Patriot the units I have been in never did Class A inspections I am on PCS leave right now and scheduled to leave back to AIT on Friday and just want to make sure I have everything in order.
Thanks in advance

I belive you are definitley right on this on. It states in AR 600-8-22 the following:

Section II
Service Ribbon Accouterments
6–3. Oak Leaf Clusters
A bronze or silver twig of four oak leaves with three acorns on the stem, 13/32-inch long for the suspension ribbon,
and 5/16-inch long for the service ribbon bar and the unit award emblem is issued to denote award of second and
succeeding awards of decorations (other than the Air Medal), the Army Reserve Components Achievement Medal, and
unit awards. A silver Oak Leaf Cluster is worn instead of five bronze Oak Leaf Clusters. If the number of authorized
Oak Leaf Clusters exceeds four, a second ribbon is authorized for wear. When wearing the second ribbon, place it after
the first ribbon; the second ribbon counts as one award. Wear no more than four Oak Leaf Clusters on each ribbon. If
the receipt of future awards reduces the number of Oak Leaf Clusters sufficiently (that is, a silver oak leaf cluster for
five awards), remove the second ribbon and place the appropriate number of devices on a single ribbon. Oak Leaf
Clusters are not issued for the Legion of Merit awarded in degrees to foreign nationals. Five-sixteenths inch Oak Leaf
Clusters joined together in series of 2, 3, and 4 clusters are authorized for optional purchase and wear on service
ribbons, and unit award emblems.

Your Silver Oak Leaf would be five plus two bronze seven plus the ribbon itself would be eight, as long as you have less than four clusters on a ribbon that is allowed
Hope this helps good luck
