why WE RUCK They came as strangers...
THEIR MISSION HAD ENDED THEIR BATTLE STILL ROARED
FOR BROTHERS AND SISTERS WHO COULDN'T MAKE IT THRU
A LIFE FILLED WITH TURMOIL THEY WANTED NO MORE
NO K.I.A. REPORTED
NO PURPLE HEART TO HOLD
JUST ADD IT TO A NUMBER
THAT'S EASY TO IGNORE
THESE RUCKERS WILL REMEMBER
JUST WHAT THAT NUMBER'S FOR
FIGHTING FOR SOLUTIONS
TO 22 NO MORE

What is a Teal Star Family?
The United States has categorized military families into two groups, the Blue Star Family ,which represents those whose family member is serving our Country , one Star for each family member serving. A blue star banner is hung proudly for all to see.
The Gold Star is given to the families of those KIA, service members Killed in Action. This is the star that NO family wants, the ultimate sacrifice, a wound that never heals. These Families are honored and supported by our Country, in many ways. They are publicly honored, recognized for not only their loss but their service to our country.
