The Silver Star Families of America
October 27, 2011

The Silver Star Families gives me an opportunity to give back to those men and women who have not only given their lives literally but to the ones who made it home (sometimes with limbs missing and other horrible injuries). I personally want to do something directly to affect their situations and this was the way I chose to do it. I am so happy there are groups like the Silver Star Families who do care about the veterans who return home and while they are still away and follow up with them and keep tabs on their situations after they return. They need help; any and all kinds of help. We can go through these great organizations to give back.

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

It has given me an opportunity to give back.

Ways to make it better...

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

Give them more monetary resources to provide for returning veterans and their families when they fall on hard times in the job market and in life. We need to have organizations like this who do keep up with and care about them after returning.
