The Governor of Tennessee, Bill Haslam, issued a Certificate of Merit, honoring Diana for her work and her patriotism.
Diana stated, "It is such an honor to be recognized for the work we do with our "kids" but it is all about them and not me. The work we do is only a small way to pay back the sacrifice they make for us everyday."
"This award is to them and for them, and will make me work harder to live up to this honor. They have done so much for us and it is time that society understands that the military is the best part of who America is."
The Silver Star Families of America is one of the top military and non profit organizations in the country.
They have been honored at Great non profits and the Huffington Post. The Silver Star Families of America can be reached at www.silverstarfamilies.org
