How many battle stars did the uss north corolina earn?

Fifteen. She participated in almost every major campaign in the Pacific. She was the first of the new "fast battleships", the first built after the "building holiday" agreed to internationally under the naval limitations of the Treaty of Washington (1923). All the older US battleships had a top speed of 21 knots. The North Carolina and the other nine fast battleships were fast enough to keep up with the aircraft carriers. Her modern armament, particularly the secondary battery of 20 5-inch guns, ten to a side, made her extremely effective against enemy aircraft. So the North Carolina and the other nine fast battleships spent the war in task forces with the aircraft carriers, providing excellent anti-aircraft cover for the valuable carriers.
