    This medal was given to me by a friend of the family who made one jump into France WWII I believe. It earned him the star seen . I was never told about what his actions in France were.

      Nice looking airborne wings!

      Can you add a photo of the back?

      Usually one star in the center means he had a combat jump. One star on the top of the parachute he is a senior parachutist.

      Hi Scottvez
      The back is not marked and there are the 2 wires that hold the star in place. I will try to get the back picture on.

      Thanks Ttomtucker
      I had been told that one center star was a combat jump.
      Thanks for the confirmation.

      The star on the shrouds signifies a combat jump. As tom stated a star on top is a senior parachutist and a star and wreath is for a master parachutist.
