I am curious were the bronze stars, being talked about actually battle stars. My dad had 3 large battle stars on his uniform for action at Monte Casino, Bulge and Rhine. He also had two smaller stars, not sure what action they were for.

Smaller stars on a military ribbon denote subsequent awards. For instance two stars on a Bronze Star ribbon indicate the awarding of three medals total. The Silver Star, the nations third highest award for bravery in combat is in fact star shaped ... adorned by a light blue/red & white ribbon.
