Bronze Star Medal - The Bronze Star Medal may be awarded to individuals who, while serving in any capacity with the Armed Forces of the United States in a combat theater, distinguish themselves by heroism, outstanding achievement, or by meritorious service not involving aerial flight.  I received two Bronze Stars during my Vietnam service.  Both were for meritorious service in the combat zone.  The star on my ribbon shows,  that it was a second award of that decoration.  If it had been awarded for valorous or heroic actions, it would have had a letter V attached to the ribbon.
