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:
- Federally recognize families of Veterans lost to suicide as Green Star Families
- Designate a Green Star Banner to be Federally recognized and presented to the family.
- 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.
