Hi,Brian Miller ! The reference to five bronze stars means that he participated in five campaigns. Had he been entitled to (the) Bronze Star,it too would have been listed along with the Good Conduct Medal and the Victory Medal. The EAME Theater (European, African Middle Eastern Campaign): indicates credit for ground combat in North Africa, Sicily and Italy within the time frame, 11May42 /8 May 45, and would encompass the five campaigns he faught in . If you will ID his unit, I will identify the five campaigns. Louie F. Turner.
