The Silver Star Families of America
November 20, 2008

The longer I am a member of The Silver Star Families of America, the more Joy I feel in my heart. Whether it be presenting Silver Star Banners and Certificates to a Purple Heart Recipient, or knowing I can contact my state Senator to help out a wonderful Veteran........it gives me a warm feeling of accomplishment on a daily basis. My network of contacts grows each and every day making it possible for me to make a difference in the life of a Veteran, and it's All due to The Silver Star Families of America. Without them as my 'backbone' and my 'support system,' I could never pull this off alone!! I wake up every day knowing that I Can make a difference in someone's life........the rewards are endless, and I'm not talking about monetarily - I'm talking about that warm feeling in your heart that lets you Know that you Have helped someone today, and will be able to help someone tomorrow, the next day and the next, and so on. As the saying goes, "Silver Star Shining for Sacrifice" - "They" sacrificed for 'us' - now 'we' owe them, and through The Silver Star Families of America, we are doing just that - giving back to them!! May we continue to grow in numbers, and help our wounded and ill each and everytime they need us. God Bless!!

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

the way the public is starting to view our wounded as deserving, and honoring them more and more.

Ways to make it better...

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

More feedback

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

getting to know and honor our wounded and ill - our wonderful Veterans who support our Great Country, while also building a friendship base with other members of the Organization.

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

the most willing to help others - just an amazing group of people.

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

keep honoring and helping our wounded and ill, until each and everyone of them was taken care of!!

Ways to make it better...

I only had More hours in a day to honor our wounded and ill.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting more donations and members to accomplish all of our goals.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I hope that one day, The Silver Star Families of America will be a 'household name.'

Should this review be counted for a specific campaign?
