Silver Star Banner Day – May 1st
What comes to mind for you when you see that date on your calendar? I hope a lot of good things, such as beautiful spring flowers, picnics with loved ones, and soft, cool breezes drifting across your face as you welcome a warmer, greener time of year.
But in your reflections, there is one more special thing to become aware of for the first of May, and that is… Silver Star Banner Day, a day which our nation now sets aside to honor our wounded, ill, disabled and vulnerable veterans as well as their families.
Thanks to the good efforts of Silver Star Families of America, in the Spring of 2010, the House and the Senate passed resolutions declaring May 1st to be Silver Star Banner Day. Since then, countless other localities along with thousands of American citizens have followed by holding commemorations and special events.
Learn more today at Silver Star Families.org about Silver Star Banner Day and how you can help veterans all throughout the year; and then share the good news with people in your community. Let’s be there for our veterans & their families on May 1st and every day.
This is Chaplain Ann M. Wolf wishing you & yours a meaningful, memorable, Silver Star Banner Day this year and every year.
