What do 2 small gold stars on both the Bronze Star and the Asiatic -Pacific campaign ribbons mean All were awarded during World War 2?
They represent combat engagements or additional awards of a medal. The specifics vary a bit from award to award and service to service. My best guess would be that the stars on the Bronze Star represent combat engagements and that the two on the campaign ribbon represents the second and third award. If they are truly gold, they could actually represent ten awards, but that is doubtful.
Each star denotes a single campaign.

In WWII soldiers who served overseas got… Read More
