Statement of Purpose
Our purpose is to cultivate comraderie, aid the defenseless, train in knightly skills, preserve history, and explore the forgotten places in our world.
Who we are
The Order of the Silver Star is a veteran-run fraternal nonprofit organization that specializes in humanitarian aid and historical preservation headquartered in Northeast Ohio. The Order was founded in 2016 and officially recognized as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 2020. The Order brings honorable men together from a variety of backgrounds to make a positive impact in the world.
Similar to many chivalric orders throughout history, the Order exists to aid the defenseless as laid out by the tenets of Christ's teachings. In a modern context, this is accomplished through providing assistance to those in need throughout the local community and around the world. The Brothers of the Order offer volunteer assistance, serving local organizations that need help with efforts to aid the community.
Brothers of the Order train in knightly skills, specialize in humanitarian aid, historical preservation, and promote an active lifestyle through hiking and scouting.
