Teal Star Motorcycle Run

Join Adopt a Soldier on our mission eliminate the loss of our military and veterans to PTSD.

Stand with AAS as we recognize  & embrace our 

TEAL STAR FAMILIES!

It is believed, in 1918 President Woodrow Wilson, coined the word “Gold Star Mother”, honoring the mothers whose son was KIA thus replacing the black arm band worn by the families during WWI. The military families with sons serving during WWI & WWII displayed a Blue Star, one star representing each son that was serving.  Congress authorized the military to present these families with a gold star lapel pin, thus making it official.

 

America losses 8,000 veterans/military members to suicide each year! These are casualties of PTSD, and/or service-related deaths! In no way does AAS condone suicide, but strongly feel these families DESERVE to be embraced and support!

 

Giving these families the opportunity to speak out freely, sharing their story, will and can save the lives of our heroes! 

 

In 2019, AAS Embraced our first TEAL STAR FAMILY.

These families have suffered a loss due to their loved ones choice to serve our great Nation. Please join us as we embark on making this a national recognition.​

 

We invite any military family member whose suffered a loss due to suicide to PLEASE reach out! Adopt a Soldier believes all those who served , regardless of the circumstances of their death,  deserve the honor due to them from every American. AAS wants these families to hold their head high, speak openly and proudly of their Soldier. Suicide should NOT take that away, only we, as Americans can change the stigma of the word! Please join us on this mission!
