Abstract: In this note we prove that

(i) homogeneous $ *$-pure subgroups of completely decomposable groups are completely decomposable,

(ii) $ *$-pure subgroups of finite rank completely decomposable groups are almost completely decomposable.

We also characterize those reduced completely decomposable groups $ G$, with $ T(G)$ satisfying the maximum condition, any $ *$-pure subgroup of which is also completely decomposable.
