U.S. BRONZE STAR MINIATURE MEDAL
U.S. WW2 BRONZE STAR MINIATURE MEDAL REPRODUCTION
Miniature Bronze star medal
This star was established in February 1944 for award to any person who, while serving on or after December 7, 1941, in any capacity with the Army, Navy, Marine Corps or Coast Guard of the United States, distinguishes himself by heroic or meritorious achievement or service in connection with military operations, not involving participation in aerial flight, against an enemy of the US.
It may be awarded for acts of gallantry or meritorious service either in actual combat or in direct support of combat operations. The star is primarily intended for recognizing performance of duty beyond the ordinary, but not sufficiently outstanding enough to warrant the award of the Silver star Medal or Legion of Merit.
