Rusty, I have a book called "Battle Stars and Naval Awards" including Presidential Unit Citations and Navy Unit Commendations earned by the US Navy, Coast Guatd and US Marine Corps during World War II and the Korean War.
If you furnish the name of your grandpa's ship and date or near date I can probably tell you whether they received a battle star. (The book also includes battle stars earned by merchant ships).
There are many pages devoted to merchant ship awards.
