The Silver Star Families of America
March 2, 2010

In May of 2008, I became a banner recipient of the Silver Star Banner. As a Vietnam Veteran who was never welcomed home, this was quite an experience for me. I had never been honored for my service to my country. I suffer from PTSD and a host of Agent Orange related issues as a result of my service in Vietnam. The Silver Star Families of America recognized that, and I proudly have a Silver Star Banner hanging in the front window of my home. Not only do they honor Veterans that have been wounded, or are ill but they also remember the dying veteran too who has served his country. They send prayer blankets to VA Hospices around the country and no Veteran who is wounded or ill or dying is ever forgotten by The Silver Star Families of America. They also put out information about PTSD and TBI to educate the public. There are a lot of excellent organizations out there that honor Veterans, but The Silver Star Families of America is a class act in everything that they do. As a result of all of the above I have become involved in the Wounded Warrior Watch Forum which is a place that one can go for answers, comfort and companionship.
