The Silver Star Families of America has one mission: To remember, honor and assist the wounded, ill and dying of our Armed Forces from all wars.
To remember them, we sponsor Silver Star Service Banner Day every May 1st. A day (just one day) set aside to remember those who have given so much for us and this nation.
In 2009, 49 states, 2,474 cities and counties, Guam, Saipan, the Chickasaw Nation and the U.S. Virgin Islands issued proclamations in support of Silver Star Service Banner Day. 1,912 cities and counties have made the day permanent. The State of Missouri has made it a law.
Now, the United States Senate has proposed making May 1st Silver Star Service Banner Day nation wide. We urge all of you to contact your Senators and ask them to co sponsor and support S. Res 320, which has been referred to the Senate Armed Services Committee.
The United States House of Representatives has also joined in by introducing H.Res. 855. You can help further by contacting your Congressmen and urging them to support this legislation which is now in the House Committee on Government reform.
My friends, this is not a partisan request. Regardless of political affiliation and being liberal or conservative . . . we should all agree that our wounded, ill, and dying deserve being remembered.
We are pleased that David Bancroft and USA Patriotism have joined with us in supporting this legislation. We would expect nothing else from such a patriotic man and organization.
Please join with us . . . stand up in the full power of your sovereign capacity and make your voices heard. This will cost you nothing but will mean so much to those who have given so much.
Please don't forget them. They never forgot you.
