What a fun way to honor our Soldiers and Veterans, recycle our retired flags and do a project that can be done by any age. To cover the cost of supplies and postage, a donation of $11 for STAR-ter kit is requested via paypal or check.  Due to the demand, only one kit is available per person/organization.
You probably have questions that are not answered on this website.

Once you receive the instructions, please contact us with any questions.

If you would like to be placed on the map of Star Makers, I will need your permission and what information you would like published - name, address, and/or phone.

We have not attempted to get 501c3 status yet, thus we have not received the status of non-profit. All donations received are used for postage and supplies. 

Stars are NOT SOLD. They are free to anyone. The person sending Stars to others may make a donation, but it is not necessary.

We do suggest that someone requesting a Star that has not been in the military pass it on to someone that has served or is serving. We have given to children of military personnel in honor of their serving parent. Stars have been given to those in service to our country that include your local firemen and police.

How do you dispose of a torn, soiled or damaged flag?
Section 8(k), Chapter 1, Title 4, United States Code states the flag, when it is in such a condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.

There are Organizations that are  questioning the project called Stars for our Troops, stating it goes against the US Flag Code. The Code is a recommendation on how the flag is handled in different circumstances. Dignity and respectablility are how these Flags and Stars are handled. 

The Flag Code was written in1923, when all flags were biodegradable. Today, they are synthetic, thus toxic when burned, may become a glob of plastic when burned at low flame. Flags do not need to be burned, they can be buried and may not disintegrate in 200 years.

Please follow what is in your heart about this project. Do not deny others the right to make their own decision about the project. That is what this country is based upon, the right for each of us to agree to disagree.

Speak to someone that has received a Star. Read the messages received from our soldiers and veterans.

We thank you for your concern.

Please note:
There are NO Flag Police!
