The Bronze Star Medal was also awarded for meritorious service in the combat theater.
If the public are bound to yield obedience to laws to which they cannot give their approbation, they are slaves to those who make such laws and enforce them.--Samuel Adams as Candidus, Boston Gazette 20 Jan. 1772

The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.
The Bronze Star can also be awarded for acts of merit or meritorious service. When it is awarded for bravery in combat, there is a "V" device (for valor) that is attached to the medal and the ribbon. My Dad was awarded the Bronze Star with "V" device for actions during combat in Korea. A friend of mine was awarded a Bronze Star (without the V) for meritorious service during a tour in Iraq in 2004.
