Interesting question: From Wikipedia - "The Army Wound Ribbon was a short lived decoration of the United States Army which was created on 1917-09-06 to recognize those soldiers who had received combat wounds during the First World War. The Wound Ribbon was only issued until 1917-10-12 and the following year was replaced with the Wound Chevron."
Based on the short period of 5 weeks, It is doubtful that very many were actually issued since overseas fighting during training with the French did not begin until mid Octber 1917. For image click on link below.
