Every May 1 Americans honor the sacrifices of the combat wounded, ill and dying service members on Silver Star Service Banner Day.
Across all branches of The United States military, Silver Star families are honored for their services with the symbol of the Silver Star Service Banner and Flag. We are encouraged on May 1 to take the opportunity to do the same.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Show gratitude and thank those who have returned from deployment wounded or ill. You can get involved with helping SSFOA members with fundraising and community awareness events in your area. Share your stories or experiences using #SilverStarService.
