Badly needed services for our combat wounded and their families.
It is an honor to be a part of this organization. Steve Newton and his wife work tirelessly on behalf of our wounded and vulnerable Veterans. I hope to do more this coming year to support their efforts.
Silver star families helped my brother when he was injured. Afterwards, I joined to help.
I found Silver Star Families by accident and am so glad that I did. What they do for our sick, ill, and wounded people of uniform is just stupendous. I have done some volunteer work with the organization and can attest that they support the people that need it most in every facet they can to their fullest abilities with obvious Love, Care, and Concern! Everyone needs to support them in their endeavors to save and enhance lives of those who sacrificed for all of us.
I personally know the founder of SSFOA, he is a great person and is willing to go above and beyond the call of duty. Please support the Silver Star Families of America, they are the best nonprofit I know.
I appreciate this opportunity to write a review for Silver Star Families of America. I was made aware of SSFOA by a former Navy friend. After checking out their site, I called them and became a volunteer becoming the Maryland/DC Representative. This has been a most rewarding adventure for both myself and my husband. We have had the opportunity to assist in creating SSFOA's Headqarters Building in MO, place wreaths at the Tomb of the Unknown, and represent SSFOA on Veterans Day at Arlington Cemetery. Additionly, we work with staff at the Veterans Hospital (Old Soldiers Home) in DC, presenting a program each quarter. Our group of card creaters do cards each quarter for the VA hospitals. We do fund raisers and other activities to raise funds for SSFOA. This is just a tiny portion of the wonderful work SSFOA does nationwide for our veterans. I have been fortunate to become a member of the Board and now hold the position of Vice President. I strongly recommend you check out the SSFOA site at: silverstarfamilies.org where you will find additional information and see photos of our wonderful veterans receiving banners and citations for their service. Hopefully, you will want to become involved with a donation of funds or your time to honor our kids, as we lovingly call them.
Thank you for your time. Margie Harich, MD/DC
Thank you for allowing me to review Silver Star Families of America. My name is Margie Harich and I am now a Board of Directors member. I first became acquainted with SSFOA when a retired Navy nurse felt it was a most valid charity and I might find it interesting. Well, that was an understatement. I contacted the Founders, Diana and Steve Newton, who were delighted to bring another member on board. Shortly thereafter, I became the Maryland/DC Representative. It has been a beautiful adventure. Just to name a few things my husband, Marvin, and I have had the priviledge of doing. We have, with pride, presented Silver Star Service Banners and Citations to many honorable and most deserving veterans. It was our pleasure, and with lots of sweat equity, we helped renovate the Headquarters Building in Missouri for offices and public/private interviews. We have handled charitable functions and met wonderful individuals, some famous in their respective fields. We have cried, laughed, and been awed by our couregous veterans. We have done fund raisers and met with other organizations to share our fund raising ideas. So, it is with continued respect and pride I give this five star rating to one of the most deserving charities in the nation.
I volunteer for The Silver Star Families of America by making and sending out cards to our veterans, mostly to Vet homes or hospitals, it is really nice to get word back that you made someone smile. Great Group that really is dedicated to our countries veterans, honoring and helping them where they can!
I never did serve our country in the military, however I do have many friends who have. I am recently retired (2 1/2 years ago) after spending over 33 years in Law Enforcement as a Patrol Deputy and Patrol Supervisor. During my service our agency has had members injured in the line of duty as well as killed in the line of duty. I am so aware of the pain and suffering the family members, as well as those who have been injured serving the public, go through. I am a major supporter of our military and any organization that gives of their time to help those wounded warriors and their families who have been severely injured while serving in our military. I recently came across "The Silver Star Families of America" through a friend who asked me to volunteer by sending money and spending some time making cards for our wonderful veterans. I strongly urge anyone, who wants to help out to donate some time and money, if they can, with the this wonderful organization, to honor those who have served and given their all for our protection and let them know they are not forgotten and are loved and appreciated.
Great Organization.. Highly recommend it to anybody that is looking to volunteer and help out our Military wounded and Ill and Dying..
As a volunteer with Silver Star Families of America, I have found them to be very helpful in assisting me when I need advice or help with an issue. They are a very sincere friendly group of people, and they have come a long way. Successfully bringing back May 1 as a traditional day of recognition for our wounded and sick veterans. This has been a remarkable achievement, and I am proud of being part of this endeavor. The Silver Star Flag, which is the official flag for our wounded and sick veterans, can now be seen flying across our nation. This charity provides meal cards and items for 'stand downs.' Any veteran can and does, when made known, the honor of receiving the Silver Star flag. This charity is recognised throughout the United States for its compassionate concern for our veterans of all wars.
Silver Star Families of America is a wonderful organization. My first project was to send cards to veterans who were hospitalized. The second project was sending cards at different holidays to military personnel whether Iraq or Afghanistan, or on a aircraft carrier. As the daughter of a career Army officer, it's important to show how much they are appreciated. Their honor, commitment and courage are recognized by this Patriot. I highly recommend Silver Star Families of America! Submitted by: Carol McGuinn email: email@example.com
