Green Star Bill Proposed

Published on: August 13, 2021

We are pleased to announce, the Green Star Bill H.R. 5036 was introduced in the House by Rep Van Drew. The Bill calls for Congress to:

  1. Federally recognize families of Veterans lost to suicide as Green Star Families
  2. Designate a Green Star Banner to be Federally recognized and presented to the family.
  3. Designate funding by the VA to provide counseling to the family in order to heal from the trauma of the Veteran's suicide.

This is a great step forward for the families of veterans and for our organization. Please reach out to your representative and ask them to support H.R. 5036.
