Silver Star Service Banner Day

Next Event Date: Tuesday, May 01, 2018

On March 24, 2010, Resolution 534 proposed May 1, 2010, as the start of annual Silver Star Service Banner Day.

Congress passed H.R.855 making Silver Star Service Banner Day on May 1st an Official Day to honor wounded, ill, and injured veterans. The Silver Star Families of America is an organization formed to remember, honor and assist the wounded and ill veterans and active duty Armed Forces and to address issues relevant to the problems facing veterans and active duty.

The US government has always honored the sacrifices made by the wounded warriors or those members of the Armed Forces fallen ill in combat, and noted that the sacrifices of military service members and veterans of the Armed Forces on behalf of the United States should never be forgotten.
