    Just found my uncle discharge papers from the war and this was on the document. What do the Bronze Stars signify? Thanks.

    Probably his medals, but seeing the document would confirm it.

    Was he American ?

    Campaign stars are authorized for these United States campaign medals (bronze and silver campaign stars are worn to denote participation in a designated campaign or campaign phase or period):

    He was American. The quote from his Discharge papers in section 33 (Decorations and Citations) is - "GOOD CONDUCT MEDAL AMERICAN CAMPAIGN MEDAL EUROPEAN AFRICAN MIDDLE EASTERN CAMPAIGN MEDAL WITH 3 BRONZE STARS WORLD WAR II VICTORY RIBBON). Not very tech savvy but will try to take a pic of it later.

    Here's an example.
    A very famous one.
    It will explain the small bronze stars.
