We see a drawing Forrest sat upon a gravestone on a dark night with no moon, he is looking up and obviously stargazing. There are many night sky drawings in his book. The Epilogue shows a drawing of a man looking up at the moon and stars amidst 23 tree stumps. 'W' is 23 in the alphabet and the end letter of RainboW. In my geometry puzzle on Colorado I came across 'Triangulum' as part of that geometry which fits precisely to its stars photo. Triangulum appears again on the covers of 'OUAW' and I know the large star represents 'Adelaide'.
When thinking of stars we generally think of Silver color. Forrest mentions 'Dancing with the Stars' plural, in Dancing with the Millennium. However as far as I can tell he only once mentions the word 'Star' singular in his book, and that is in 'My war for me'. He was awarded the 'Silver Star' for his action on December 20th 1968. You can draw that Silver Star on the Zodiac wheel where its apex will be in 'Capricorn' and the tiny Silver star will be at its center.
In the revised edition of 'OUAW' you will see an added star after Forrest's name which copies the image of the Silver Star medal (an extra clue I believe) because he was awarded it. It is oriented the same way as the large glowing star which shows a Gold dot to the North west which was originally white. I believe it suggests that the Gold is some distance away from the Silver star.
One last rhetorical question I ask is, when they award you a medal where do they pin it? Answer: on your 'CHEST' Where is the Gold dot? Some distance removed from the star itself.
