It is our duty to recognize, honor and advocate for the combat wounded, injured and ill troops and Veterans. When personally able to present the Silver Star Service banner package it is an experience like no other, even after the 1,000's of the SSSB packages that have either been presented or mailed for presentation, each one unique and touching- just like each individual recipient. I am grateful and thankful for our vital role of our mission to be able to be a part of such a wonderful thing.
The SSFOA operates on a 'shoe string' budget and the things and programs and initiatives that we accomplish on so little just goes to show that what is in the heart - not the coinpurse- is the soul of success. We thank each wounded and/or ill that we connect with and we thank the generosity of our donors, supporters, alumni and membership with gratitude. Without you there would be no SSFOA and that would be a sad day, indeed. THANK YOU all.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Triple the funding to keep up with the quadruple of needs, requests and assistance inquiries that we receive, on a daily basis. To date, after almost 10 years- I am in awe that no one has been put on a waiting list for recognition with the SSSB packages and other items we provide free of charge. This renews and restores faith that all things come to those who can see something through, good times- bad times- victorious times- we shall endure.
