Best Answer

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. It has a ribbon that is primarily BLUE. The Silver Star Medal is a higher award for bravery in combat.

Can you find the reason for your dad receiving the bronze star?

If you look through your dad's personal papers, an award of the Bronze Star Medal would have been accompanied by a Citation Certificate. If you can't find it, look at his discharge. There is a section there saying Awards and Decorations. If Bronze Star is there, take that, along with your dad (or you- with proof of your kinship), to a Veteran Service Officer at a federal building (some county offices have them,too) and they will help you.
