Being a member of Silver Star Families of America is an honor and priviledge. I have received more joy out of what it stands for and honoring our wounded and ill soldiers. The joy that I feel when I write a letter to a wounded soldier or to a Veteran that needs a boost makes my heart soar. This organization is more that just that. We are family. I have found a home here, and I intend on doing everything in my power that I can do to make sure that every city in this country signs a proclamation to make May 1st Silver Star Banner Day a National day of observance to honor our wounded and ill. The two people who are the founders of SSFOA are angels sent from heaven. Without them this never would have been. Then we have a wonderful team from our president to the rest of the officers of our organization. Each and everyone of them put forth so much that you can't help but want to take part. It warms your heart to know what you've done for a soldier or veteran. I thank G-d everyday for being a part of this wonderful family. I am truly blessed to know all of these people. As our founder says, "Let us NEVER lose site of the mission, which is to promote, protect, honor and help our wounded and their families. May God continue to bless American and ALL of her troops!"

SSFOA is a wonderful organization who honors our wounded and ill service members. Being a volunteer in the SSFOA, who relys totally on donations, it is great to know that 98% of the funds raised goes toward the purchase of Silver Star Banners and programs directly assisting wounded and ill members of our Armed Forces. The heart of the org is to make sure that ALL who were wounded or incurred illnesses while honorably serving our country during wartime know we shall never forget their sacrifice and sevice. The SSFOA goes beyond wounds that are seen to also include wounds and illnesses that our service members suffer as a result of keeping our country safe and served in a combat situation. Our mission is to say THANK YOU, we HONOR YOU, WE WILL NEVER FORGET, and we do this primarilay by presenting Silver Star Banners to our wounded or ill war Heroes. This organization is awesome and I am proud to be a part of their wonderful mission.

The longer I am a member of The Silver Star Families of America, the more Joy I feel in my heart. Whether it be presenting Silver Star Banners and Certificates to a Purple Heart Recipient, or knowing I can contact my state Senator to help out a wonderful Veteran........it gives me a warm feeling of accomplishment on a daily basis. My network of contacts grows each and every day making it possible for me to make a difference in the life of a Veteran, and it's All due to The Silver Star Families of America. Without them as my 'backbone' and my 'support system,' I could never pull this off alone!! I wake up every day knowing that I Can make a difference in someone's life........the rewards are endless, and I'm not talking about monetarily - I'm talking about that warm feeling in your heart that lets you Know that you Have helped someone today, and will be able to help someone tomorrow, the next day and the next, and so on. As the saying goes, "Silver Star Shining for Sacrifice" - "They" sacrificed for 'us' - now 'we' owe them, and through The Silver Star Families of America, we are doing just that - giving back to them!! May we continue to grow in numbers, and help our wounded and ill each and everytime they need us. God Bless!!
