The Silver Star Families of America
March 2, 2010

I have been a member of this Organization for almost 2 years and volunteer on the Letter Writing Team and fundraisiers. What The Silver Star Families of America does to honor the wounded, ill and dying veterans is a blessing. So many of these veterans think that they have been forgotten for what they have done. Well The Silver Star Families has not forgotten them. One can never grown tired of seeing a Veteran honored with a banner whether they are from WWII or just home from Iraq. It tugs at your heart when you see the tears in their eyes because they are being honored and remembered. I can't think of anyplace I would rather be volunteering then where I am right now. The Silver Star Families of America is like a second home to me.
