The Silver Star Families of America
October 3, 2012

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...

More people will help and give their time and donations.
