This is info from my Links Page on Ribbon Devices.

 

 

Bronze Star

Silver Star

The bronze star represents participation in campaigns or operations, multiple qualifications, or an additional award to any of the various ribbons on which it is authorized. The silver star is worn in the same manner as the bronze star, but each silver star is worn in lieu of five bronze service stars.

Silver/Bronze Stars

Bronze Oak Leaf Cluster

 

When worn together on a single ribbon, the silver star(s) will be worn to the wearer's right of any bronze star(s). The bronze oak leaf cluster represents second and subsequent entitlements of awards.

 

Silver Oak Leaf Cluster

Silver/Bronze Oak Leaf Clusters

 

The silver oak leaf cluster represents sixth, 11th, etc., entitlements or in lieu of five bronze oak leaf clusters. Silver oak leaf clusters are worn to the wearer's right of the bronze oak leaf clusters on the same ribbon.

The Valor Device

Valor Devices and Clusters

 

The "V" device represents valor and does not denote an additional award. Only one may be worn on any ribbon. The "V" device, when worn on the same ribbon with clusters, is worn to the wearer's right of such clusters.

 

---------------------------

 

This is the ribbon the men got for their service in the ETO. The bronze and silver stars mentioned above would be attached to it. Here is the background for that ribbon and the campaigns and landings associated with it.

 

For instance my father's ETO ribbon shows a silver star (5 campaigns) with a bronze arrowhead.

 

A bronze star is worn on the ribbon to indicate participation in designated campaigns. The designated campaigns for the European-African-Middle Eastern Theater are:

 

Egypt-Libya 11 Jun 42 - 12 Feb 43

Air Offensive, Europe 4 Jul 42 - 5 Jun 44
