I never did serve our country in the military, however I do have many friends who have. I am recently retired (2 1/2 years ago) after spending over 33 years in Law Enforcement as a Patrol Deputy and Patrol Supervisor. During my service our agency has had members injured in the line of duty as well as killed in the line of duty. I am so aware of the pain and suffering the family members, as well as those who have been injured serving the public, go through. I am a major supporter of our military and any organization that gives of their time to help those wounded warriors and their families who have been severely injured while serving in our military. I recently came across "The Silver Star Families of America" through a friend who asked me to volunteer by sending money and spending some time making cards for our wonderful veterans. I strongly urge anyone, who wants to help out to donate some time and money, if they can, with the this wonderful organization, to honor those who have served and given their all for our protection and let them know they are not forgotten and are loved and appreciated.

Very dedicated group for the cause of honoring and caring for our Veterans, especially those most vulnerable. I have chosen as an artist to feature their work in conjunction with my efforts for God & Country: http://www.annwolfmusic.org/1_In_a_Million_Together.php

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Advise them to take a little more percentage for their admin needs; they take less than any group I know from the general proceeds and could probably need a little more rest and help in the office.

As a volunteer with Silver Star Families of America, I have found them to be very helpful in assisting me when I need advice or help with an issue. They are a very sincere friendly group of people, and they have come a long way. Successfully bringing back May 1 as a traditional day of recognition for our wounded and sick veterans. This has been a remarkable achievement, and I am proud of being part of this endeavor. The Silver Star Flag, which is the official flag for our wounded and sick veterans, can now be seen flying across our nation. This charity provides meal cards and items for 'stand downs.' Any veteran can and does, when made known, the honor of receiving the Silver Star flag. This charity is recognised throughout the United States for its compassionate concern for our veterans of all wars.

Silver Star Families of America is a wonderful organization. My first project was to send cards to veterans who were hospitalized. The second project was sending cards at different holidays to military personnel whether Iraq or Afghanistan, or on a aircraft carrier. As the daughter of a career Army officer, it's important to show how much they are appreciated. Their honor, commitment and courage are recognized by this Patriot. I highly recommend Silver Star Families of America! Submitted by: Carol McGuinn email: isalutetheflag2@yahoo.com

Hello. My name is Carl Cronk, Veterans Service Officer, U.S. Army Ambassador. Through personal experience and working with the members of the Silver Star Families of America they are by far at the top of the list. What they do for the thousands of military personnel current and prior and their families ls admirable. Each staff member and volunteer is fastidious and pertinacious in all they do and they are to be commended. The Silver Star Families of Americal consistently show a high degree of enthusiasm, energy, and force in helping the heros of our nation.

The Silver Star Families of America is a growing organization with a mission vital to the recognition of sacrifices made by our wounded warriors and their families. It's mission has become so profound that the Missouri Governor--twice yearly--holds ceremonies in his Capitol office during which he presents Missouri wounded with Silver Star Banners on behalf of a grateful state and nation. What better endorsement for our heroes than this! Thank you SSFOA for all you have done.

SSFOA is one of the greatest organizations I've been associated with. I've been a volunteer, Board Member and doner. Steve and Diana go out of their way to attend to the needs of the wounded and their families.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing the faces of the veterans and their families when SSF sponsored the baseball game a few years ago was amazing. Meeting the veterans gave me a deeper understanding of all they have been through. Having the support I needed while my son served in Iraq and was stationed clear across the country from me something I will treasure for a lifetime. While my son came home without being wounded. They even helped him find a job (which he loves).

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

More people will help and give their time and donations.

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

Nothing that I can think of except I lived closer to participate more in events.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Ton's of new friends.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Overwhelmed with emotion too hard to describe. I'd do anything for SSFOA

I joined the SSFOA after my son was wounded in Iraq while serving with the USMC. I have made lasting friends while working for this organization. It really gives you a good feeling to be able to help wounded military and veterans by writing cards and letters, collecting personal care items, and making up gift boxes for hospitalized veterans. I have also been able to give and recieve support as the mother of a wounded service man.

I joined the Silver Star Families after my son was wounded in Iraq. I wanted to help other servicemen and families who were going through the same thing I did. This organization honors and assists servicemen injured or wounded in a war zone. We have written cards and letters of thanks and encouragement to the wounded, those suffering from PTSD
and their families. We have provided gift bags of personal care items to VA Medical Centers as well as baked cookies and sent boxes of items to both Iraq and Afghanistan. We have given DVD's and CD's to various hospitals including Landsthul. We have honored the sacrifice of thousands of servicemen by awarding them the Silver Star Service Banner.

The Great!

Provide more grants and funding to broaden the scope of programs available
