It probably means he earned a Bronze Star Medal. The medal was awarded to the soldier in a case that included three items: A bronze Star Medal, a ribbon and maybe a metallic version of the ribbon. The Bronze Star Medal was a medal in the shape of a STAR that was bronze. It hung from a ribbon that was mainly RED with a BLUE and WHITE strip. If awarded to the soldier, the STAR would have his name engraved on the back. If the ribbon has an Oak Leaf device or a small Star device or a brass "V" attached to the ribbon, this denotes a special recognition for the award. The Oak Leaf represents a second award of the Medal. The "V" recognizes the soldier for Valor.

The medal is suspended from a red ribbon with a narrow blue stripe down the middle of the ribbon. A Bronze BATTLE Star is worn upon the Campaign Ribbon of the Theater that the veteran served in. Each Bronze BATTLE Star indicates a campaign that the veteran participated in. When the veteran has earned five Bronze BATTLE Stars, the five are replaced by a single Silver BATTLE Star. My father served in six campaigns in the MTO & ETO, so on his ribbon there was a silver & a bronze campaign star. Richard V. Horrell WW 2 Connections.com
None. Formally it is the Bronze Star Medal, but the shorthand reference is often "Bronze Star". The Medal may be awarded for valor, OR for "meritorious service". If it is awarded for valor it comes with a metal "V" device to be worn on the ribbon of the Medal, and a smaller one to be worn on the small ribbon worn when the full-sized Medal is not worn. In WWII soldiers who served overseas got a Medal and ribbon for the theater they served in - the Pacific, the China-Burma-India, or the European-African-Middle Eastern. For each campaign in which they participated while in theater, they were authorized to wear "bronze campaign stars" on the ribbon of the appropriate Medal. These were much smaller, and are often confused with the Bronze Star Medal. In 1947 the US Army decided that every man who had earned a Combat Infantryman's Badge during WWII was also entitled to the Bronze Star Medal. These awards were for "meritorious service", so, no "V" device.
The ribbon is the "Europe, Africa, Middle East" for service in that theater of operations. The one bronze star signifies that the recipient was credited with participating in one campaign in that theater.
The silver star, indicating 5 subsequent awards, should be centered on the ribbon with a bronze star on either side. If on a medal the bronze stars should be above and beneath the silver star which should always be centered in the middle of the ribbon. If on the ribbon award, the bronze stars should be just to the right and left of the silver star.
Regulations change. During the Vietnam War, the US Army Bronze Star could be awarded for MERITORIUS Achievement or Heroism. If for heroism, the Bronze Star ribbon portion had a letter "V" attached, denoting "Valor."
The "V" device is worn on the left side of the ribbon (as you look at it), with an oak leaf cluster on the right hand side [ V @ ]

Each Bronze Star represents a separate campaign (battle) they were part of. Four Bronze Stars four seperates campaigns.
Depending on what the ribbon is for specifically, either one silver and two bronze oak leaf clusters, or one silver and two bronze star devices.
It means the person received a second award.
The correct size of the bronze star attachment according to MCO P1020.34G W/CH 1-5 is 3/16 inch.
The split is designed to allow the ribbon to be replaced easily if it should become dirty.
A white dwarf star is about the size of Earth.
(Reference the military award) When first awarded, the Bronze Star is a five-pointed star, bronze colored, on a mostly red ribbon. When worn thereafter, it's just a snippet of the red ribbon, which tiny metal pieces on it indicating subsequent awards, so "5 bronze stars" would be one red ribbon with four little metal tokens on it (and possibly a "V for valor" device if the award was for heroism rather than achievement).
There are two different types of "bronze star" awards that can be listed in Army records.On the Army campaign ribbon, small bronze stars are affixed to indicate campaign participation. For example, a soldier who participated in three campaigns would have three bronze stars on his campaign ribbon.There is a medal called bronze star, awarded for either performance or valor in combat.Three bronze star medals in a war are more likely campaign stars than separate medals.
The Bronze Star Medal is in the shape of a 5-pointed star, with the distance from one point across to the other is about 1.5 inches. The star is formed in relief with some rays along each arm and in the center is another tiny 5-pointed star.The ribbon is RED with a thin WHITE edge and has a BLUE stripe down the center also with a thin White edge.The Silver Star Medal is very similar but, of course, it is formed from a silver medal such as nickel alloy.

The Bronze Star Medal could be awarded for either "meritorious service" or for "valor". If the award was for valor, the Medal was awarded with a bronze "V device" to be worn on the ribbon of the Medal. After the war was over the Army decided that every WWII veteran was entitled to the Bronze Star Medal, but the award was for "meritorious service", not "valor", so no "V device".
