    Hi,

    It's the Order of the Red Star. You should find the requirements needed to award this order online.

    I attached a photo, of what the Star of Hero of the Soviet Union looked like. Only 11,635 awarded during the Great Patriotic War.

    What a great thing to have-a Red Star issued during WWII to your own Grandfather! Have you researched the circumstances of it's issuance?
