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.

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.
