The Silver Star Families of America
November 20, 2008

I joined Silver Star Families of America looking for a place I felt comfortable at while working for and with our military and veterans. I was looking for a way to honor the thousands of wounded military members and veterans that suffer from visible and invisible wounds. There are many organizations that honor the visible wounds, but very few that honor the invisible ones. The invisible wounds are the ones that are dear to my heart as I watch my son and see what he experiences. SSFOA members do not allow any hero's sacrifice to go unnoticed, the members within the organization appreciate and show they care through the pride and effort they give in all the programs. It is very heart warming to come to any member and feel when they say they support the wounded, that it comes from deep within them and they will not harm the integrity of any of those that are wounded. I feel honored and privileged to work with the members of this organization, but to be able to present a banner that the wounded member richly deserves just thrills the soul to watch them with pride written all over their face while accepting it. The wounded warriors deserve to feel human and they deserve recognition. We cannot forget those injured in war, no matter what type of injury they suffer from and no matter what war it occurred in. The volunteers and the board members keep things organized and controlled while faithfully serving. And the cofounders of SSFOA did those injured a genuine service by starting this organization and anyone can tell, as they talk with them, that their hearts are completely in this effort. The wounded will not be forgotten with this organization moving forward continuously.

The Great!

More feedback

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

the at ease atmosphere, but still getting the job done.

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

having only met them on line...they are fantastic and eager to share their knowledge.

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

recognize and honor thousands of wounded military members and vets through the programs it offers.

Ways to make it better...

I had found this organization sooner.

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

getting the public to accept the fact we have military returning home wounded day after day.

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

if there have to be injuries of war, I am glad they have an organization that is recognizing they are still heroes.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
