The Silver Star Families of America
November 22, 2008

I joined the Silver Star Fmilies of America after my son, a US Marine, was wounded in Iraq. In addition to honoring and aiding those members of our military, wounded while serving in a war zone, they have provided moral support, friendship and understanding to me and my family. I have been honored to be able to help our troops in any small way that I can, whether it's raising money for banners to present the wounded, sending cards and letters to the troops and those hospitalized, or just offering a kind word and support to their families. The Silver Star Families of America has made it possible. They are a great and loving bunch, and I am proud to be one of them.

The Great!

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

The smiling faces of veterans receiving a Silver Star Banner for wounds received while serving in a war zone, and in letters that I have received from veteran's and active duty military who I have sent a card or letter to.

Ways to make it better...

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

Pray for more funding nd more volunteers who would actually pitch in and work.

More feedback

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

The friends that I have made and knowing that I am able to help our troops.

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

All very friendly and helpful.

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

Help many more veteran's and their families.

Ways to make it better...

All the volunteers weren't so spread out over the country, and we could actually all come together occasionally to exchange ideas and network.

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

Lack of funds.
