The Silver Star Families of America
September 27, 2012

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.

The Silver Star Families of America
October 19, 2011

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.
