Recap of Silver Star Banner Day 2008
Silver Star Banner Day for 2008 has been an unqualified success. This year 46 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands and 175 towns and cities across the country recognized May 1st as the day to honor and remember our wounded and ill from All wars.
All across the country and in Germany and Iraq, our wounded know that the country remembers them.
The President of the United States also sent a letter honoring those who have worked so hard to make this day happen.
The SSFOA Silver Star Banner and Flag are THE symbols to remember our wounded and ill. But the Banners and Flags are not only for our wounded and ill; They are for us. To remind us of the sacrifice made by so many for our safety and freedom.
We promise we will never forget.
We pledge on our honor
To remember and assist the wounded
and ill of our Armed Forces
From ALL wars to the best of our ability.
We pledge that we will never forget
That we will always remember
The sacrifices you have made.
The blood sweat and tears that you shed
Will remain on our minds and in our hearts
And we will forever be grateful
We pledge that we will remind others
So that all remember
That you gave up so much
So that this Nation would not perish from the face of the earth.
“God bless the United States of America”
