Bring up this website and scroll down to the Silver Star, it will give you the requirements. http://www.americal.org/awards/achv-svc.htm Title 10, United States Code § 3746. Silver star: award The President may award a silver star of appropriate design,with ribbons and appurtenances, to a person who, while serving in any capacity with the Army, is cited for gallantry in action that does not warrant a medal of honor or distinguished service cross- (1) while engaged in an action against an enemy of the United States; (2) while engaged in military operations involving conflict with an opposing foreign force; or (3) while serving with friendly foreign forces engaged in an armed conflict against an opposing armed force in which the United States is not a belligerent party.
