Because of the very large numbers of Bronze Star Medals awarded, no single list exists.

No list of Bronze Star Medal recipients exists.

No list exists. The war lasted 10,000 days, and involved over one million US military. Bronze Star medals were awarded by the thousands.

The Bronze Star Medal is awarded for "Heroic or meritorious achievement or service." While there is no complete list compiled of Bronze Stars awarded during Vietnam, medals awarded may be looked up on the National Archives website. You can search by name and several other ways on the site linked below.Number of Bronze Stars awarded (Source: National Archives):Bronze Star for Service 26,215Bronze Star for Achievement 2,159Bronze Star for Valor 6,215

There is NO LIST of WWI recipients, because the award did not yet exist. The Bronze Star Medal was established by Executive Order 9419 on 4 February 1944 .

To date, how many soldiers have received the Bronze Star Medal for their service in Afghanistan?

Each bronze star represents participating in a campaign during the Vietnam War. Silver campaign stars are issued in lieu of five bronze campaign stars.

World War Two lasted four years, and found millions of Americans in uniform. No list of Bronze Star Medal recipients exists. There were certainly thousands of BS Medals awarded, and perhaps hundreds of thousands.

The Bronze Star medal has been awarded to several thousand US service members during the Gulf War. Not possible to list them all.

NO. That Bronze star on the Service Medal is not the same. That medal is in recognition of how many deployments to that area. The 'Bronze Star' itself stands alone.

The Bronze Star medal, as are all other military medals, is earned, not won. No list of recipients exists. There are tens of thousands who have been awarded the BS medal during its' existence.

Use caution on those medals. The Bronze Star could also be awarded for Meritorious Achievement. If the Bronze Star has a "V" device attached to the ribbon portion, then the award is for VALOR (Bravery). See website: Statistics About the Vietnam War

Some recipients of the Silver Star from the Vietnam War are William Baird, Lester Barton, and Thomas Blagg. Others are Carlos Marques, Donald Martin, and James Mathis.

There are two different bronze stars often listed on discharge papers from the Vietnam era. The Bronze Star Medal was awarded for meritorious service or valor. Subsequent awards were marked with an oak leaf cluster. Bronze stars were also small stars placed on the Vietnam Campaign ribbon to signify major campaign participation while serving "in country." Most military participated in three or four major campaigns during their tour in Vietnam, and thus added three or four small bronze stars to their yellow with red stripes Vietnam Service Ribbon.

Inquire with, "The American War Library", they might be able to help.

No, there is no by name list maintained. So far (10 September 2008) there have been 66,400 Bronze Stars for service/achievement and 1,900 Bronze Stars for valor awarded for OIF by the Army.

Almost certainly since the information highway and information flow has changed with modern warfare. It remains imperfect, but is light-years ahead of Vietnam.

As far as I know, there is no list for recipients of the Bronze Star Medal from WWII. The reason for this is, unlike higher awards that are awarded strictly for combat actions (Medal of Honor, Distinguished Service Cross, Distinguished Service Medal- which have lists of recipients) the Bronze Star Medal may be awarded also for non-combat reasons. Because of this, the list would be extraordinarily long, particularly for a period of war.
