I want to add the Bronze Star my husband’s Uncle received during the Vietnam War. I managed to add the Purple Heart one myself but didn’t see a way to add the Bronze Star.

[[Category:Bronze Star Medal]] is the correct category. :-)

It doesn't look like there is a template / sticker for the Bronze Star on the Templates for Veteran Medals page.

The image can, however, be added :

{{Image|file=Mil_template_images-1.jpg|size=30|align=r|caption='''Bronze Star'''}}

(size=30 is large enough to be seen (slightly larger than an image in a sticker would be), but small enough to not be intrusive (less than a sticker is, due to the width of stickers).)
Thanks now one more question.

Is there one for a purple heart? It needs to go on the same profile.
It's all set now. Stickers and categories for both medals.
How do we find them Natalie? I checked that templates page above which had Purple Heart but not Bronze Star.

The text on that Medals template page says "limited number" but I don't know where there's a list. 

I just tried it with Army Good Conduct Medal on my dad's profile and it worked. You just find the correct medal and its image. The US medals are here:https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:United_States_of_America%2C_Military_Decorations

{{Medal|medal=Army Good Conduct Medal|image=Military_Medals-28.png}}

I have the Navy Good Conduct medal on my profile:https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Durbin-702

Thanks
