Bronze Star Medal
The Bronze Star Medal was authorized by Executive Order No. 9419 on February 4, 1944, is awarded a person in any branch of the United Stats Military Service who, while serving in any capacity with the United States Armed Forces on or after December 7, 1941, shall have distinguished himself by heroic or meritorious achievement or service, not involving participation in aerial flight, in connection with military operations against an armed enemy.
The Bronze Star recognizes acts of heroism performed in ground combat if they are of lesser degree than that required for the Silver Star Medal. It also recognizes single acts of merit and meritorious service if the achievement or service is of a lesser degree than that deemed worthy of the Legion of Merit Medal; but such service must have been accomplished with distinction. Those awarded the Bronze Star Medal for heroism is authorized to wear the "V" Device for valor. Only one "V" is authorized on the award despite the number of times it is awarded for heroism.
United States Army personnel who, as members of the Armed Forces of the United States between December 7, 1941, and September 2, 1945, were awarded the U.S. Army Combat Infantryman's Badge or the U.s. Army Combat Medical Badge for exemplary conduct may upon application receive the Bronze Star Medal. Although these World War II badges were not authorized for award until after July 1, 1943, those whose meritorious achievements in combat before that date can be confirmed in writing may also be eligible for the Bronze Star Medal.
