Ive seen disabled veterans spirits greatly lifted through the efforts of this caring organization. Thank you so much! It lifted my spirit too.I've seen articles in the newspaper about the Silver Star flag that is a symbol of America's appreciation for the physical and mental sacrifices made by these heroes of ours.The flags are received by these wounded soldiers with great pride and become a cherished keepsake that will be handed down for generations. Worthy.

I personally know the founder of this great organization. I met him through The OAS movement. He is a true Patriot and loyal to the veterans of our military.He is always willing to put his personnel life on hold to help someone in need.Of all the organizations out there I rate this a 1. I have been a proud member and will continue to be a proud member.
God Bless

I am the mother of a Wounded Warrior, 3 times in Iraq, each time he was injured. Silver Star Families of America offers me support and information. These are people who get it because they also have been there & done that.

SSFoA is an excellent organization. Positive support and understanding. Any questions - just ask because someone may have an answer or maybe it is just a hugs & a prayer. I am Mom to a combat wounded warrior, his injury can not be seen so he "appears normal" and you just can't talk about with non military types because they just do not get it, the long waits at the VA, the VA not answering questions or following through with appointments, his raging rants.... These are people who have Been There Done That and understand your frustration and also celebrate in the victories no matter how big or small.

Silver Star Families is an amazing organization that honors our wounded warriors. Many people have seen the gold star and blue star service banners, but only a few understand the sacrifice our Veterans and their families endure day in and day out when that banner hangs in their window. With Silver Star Families providing the banner free of charge, it shows that the nation understands the sacrifice we wounded warriors have given for service to our country and wants to thank us for it. They additionally do other events to help our wounded and ill Veterans. With Gulf War Illness and now what can only be called Burn Pit Illness, they help educate American citizens about the battles we face now at home inside out bodies from the toxins we were exposed to. Without media attention, Congressional Support, and public attention we could easily be the forgotten remnants of a war. After becoming a Wounded Warrior myself in Afghanistan in 2012, the first organization I found to help me in this new chapter in my life was Silver Star Families of America. I will never forget what they have done for me!

My son was injured in Iraq and is in the process of being medically discharged from the military, Silver Star Families of America have been there to support me and provide me with many resources and answers or directions to find the answers to my many questions.

I stand back in awe and watch how this organization honors wounded and ill from all wars. Now I have heard that they are honoring the dying veterans with prayer blankets. This is a first rate organization.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

To watch the look in those eyes of those that have served and who have been wounded or are ill and see tears at being recognized for what they have done. To see the one presenting the award with tears in their eyes too.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Dedicated, fiercely loyal and totally giving of their time.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

It could do so many things to honor the wounded and ill and dying veterans. More banners, prayer blankets, coupon books, so much could be done.

This has truly been an amazing experience watching how Silver Star Families remembers the Wounded, and Ill Veterans. I have been to several banner presentations and there is no way that one can sit through a presentation without getting tears in their eyes. Some of these Veterans have never been recognized for what they have done, but thanks to Silver Star Families they are not forgotten.

The Great!

Educate the public more on the trials and tribulations that face these wounded and ill Veterans. Bring in speakers and travel the country to speak about their mission.

In May of 2008, I became a banner recipient of the Silver Star Banner. As a Vietnam Veteran who was never welcomed home, this was quite an experience for me. I had never been honored for my service to my country. I suffer from PTSD and a host of Agent Orange related issues as a result of my service in Vietnam. The Silver Star Families of America recognized that, and I proudly have a Silver Star Banner hanging in the front window of my home. Not only do they honor Veterans that have been wounded, or are ill but they also remember the dying veteran too who has served his country. They send prayer blankets to VA Hospices around the country and no Veteran who is wounded or ill or dying is ever forgotten by The Silver Star Families of America. They also put out information about PTSD and TBI to educate the public. There are a lot of excellent organizations out there that honor Veterans, but The Silver Star Families of America is a class act in everything that they do. As a result of all of the above I have become involved in the Wounded Warrior Watch Forum which is a place that one can go for answers, comfort and companionship.

The Great!
