The Silver Star Families of America
February 12, 2010

Silver Star Families of America was an organization that I joined to honor my husband who is a Wounded Vietnam Veteran. Little did I know that SSFOA would capture my heart and soul and become a daily word in my family. There is always something to do, and always Wounded and Ill and Dying Veterans to take honor. With Silver Star Families in my life, I'm not sure what I would be doing right now, except that I don't think I would have much to get up for everyday the way I do now. If you want to honor Veterans from past or present wars, well then this is where you should be. You won't be sorry. This is my other family. It is a wonderful experience and I can't think of any other thing I would rather be doing then honoring those that served our Country.

The Great!

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

The look of the eyes of the Wounded and Ill that we have honored.

More feedback

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

Is the opportunity to honor the Wounded and Ill from past wars. The stories they have to tell, the look in their eyes when you welcome them home and thank them for serving our country. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

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

Doing things above and beyond the call of duty.

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

Educating the public on PTS & TBI, going into the schools & educating the young ones about our Veterans. There are 10 million things I could think of to do with this but most of all if would be to honor our Wounded, Ill & Dying Veterans.
