Offered here: an American Bronze Star Medal from World War II, complete with lapel pin and ribbon bar in the original presentation box of issue. The medal features the so-called “Slot Brooch” closure on the ribbon.


The Bronze Star Medal was introduced on February 4, 1944 as a decoration intended for "individuals in the service of the U.S. armed forces who in a war zone distinguished themselves through heroism, special performance or meritorious exercise of their task as far as it doesn’t concern air travel. "
The decoration can be obtained for actions as defined, that do not qualify for the Silver Star.
