Try "American War Library" and "Statistics about the Vietnam War."
No comprehensive list exists.

Approximately 50,000 Silver Star Medals were awarded in WWII.

Contact the Pentagon.(

No one knows for certain and no comprehensive listing exists.

About 386 Silver Stars have been awarded to our men and women in uniform since the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 (9/11).

Unfortunately, the Department of Defense does not keep extensive records of Silver Star awards, however independent groups estimate that between 100,000 and 150,000 Silver Stars have been awarded.

World War 1: 124 awardedWorld War 2: 464 awardedVietnam: 246 awardedBringing a total of 834 medals awarded.

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

Four Australians received the VC during the Vietnam War.

There is only one star on the Vietnam flag.

Ten with two others approved but not yet awarded as of 1 September 2010.

The "tiny bronze stars" were awarded for battle participation.

Wait till OEF is over then answer it

in total there were 69 American men awarded this prestigious medal including decorated war hero Sgt. John Thomas who has been credited with saving the lives of eleven men from his battalion by repetitively running into the battlefield and dragging out the wounded men. This figure was found on the national Vietnam museum website

None. It wasn't until 1980 when the Silver Slugger was first awarded.

The total number of Bronze Star Medals awarded during World War 2 is unknown. The 82nd Airborne alone was awarded 2,478 Bronze Stars. The medal was created in 1944.

As far as I can remember, you must have five bronze battle stars to receive one silver battle star.I received four bronze battle stars in Vietnam myself, and read once that this is correct. If I''am wrong,please state other wise. Thank You, Nam Vet ,

There is no limit on how many Silver Stars might be awarded to any one individual. But, the recipient only gets the actual medal the first time. Second and subsequent awards of the same decoration are signified by the award of an "Oak Leaf Cluster" (OLC), a small brass oak leaf pin, to be worn on the ribbon of the initial decoration.

There were three medels- Bronze,Silver and Gold

The Vietnam War lasted ten thousand days, and involved over one million US military personnel. No list exists, but thousands, perhaps tens of thousands were awarded.

up to 4, if five then star is silver in color. 1 silver star equals 5 bronze stars

You must have 18 stars in the Silver Rank and complete all Silver Rank missions to unlock the Gold Rank.

Thirteen or fifteen, for sure...

There have been 8 Medals of Honor awarded since Viet Nam.
