Veteran's Day. Tannhauser Token

Here is the next token in what is going to be a series for as many holidays as I can do till New Year’s Day.

The Blue Star Flag:

The Blue Star flag was designed in 1917 and is typically displayed through the window of the homes where a loved one is on active duty. The number of stars placed in the white field indicates the number of currently serving members. Knowing someone is waiting at home can be a powerful motivation for soldiers in the field.
Thanks to the aura of hope to return home alive, this item awards four Bonus Points, to be used only by the character carrying this token, these can be used like Victory Points.
Bonus Points are not exactly like standard Victory Points. If they are not used during play, they are lost at the end of the game and subsequently not counted for victory conditions.
