We found this flag/banner in my grandfather's attic and have no clue what it is. He was in the Army during Vietnam and served as a medic in Germany as well. Any clue as to what this flag is and it's meaning?

This is pretty close. Too close to not be related. Maybe a good place to start researching.

"Fourth Liberty Loan, 1918
Awarded to any municipality or business that met its quota for the Fourth Liberty Loan in 1918. Any entity that exceeded its quota was entitled to add a blue star for each match of their quota. Size and placement of the stars varied.

What is going on with the bottom left on the red border? is it just see through? Looks like a pattern.

Looks like a WW1 Liberty Loan flag: https://fotw.info/flags/us_lloan.html
