    The Star device is seen on campaign medals to recognize multiple operations but I have never heard of them being on a Victory Medal either. Maybe someone else knows something different.

    It was not authorized by the military but consensus is its veteran applied to denote combat service. I know combat star were applied to the ETO or PTO campaign medal and ribbon.
