Over one hundred years ago, small towns on the American frontier knew that there was one person they could turn to for help in an emergency, the local sheriff. The frontier sheriff was a combination police officer, and emergency coordinator identified by his distinctive "Tin Star" badge. STAR Touring, like the citizens of the frontier towns, at times need special assistance. People trained as police officers, physicians, nurses, fire fighters, and paramedics, EMTs, or Search and Rescue fill this role. To help identify chapter members that have this special training, we have developed a special badge, the "Tin Star." The Tin Star readily identifies members who are qualified to be of assistance. (You must submit a Tin Star application along with proof of First Responder training. If you qualify, there is no additional charge.)
Another rapidly growing facet of STAR is STAR VETS. This is the part of STAR Touring that recognizes and honors the many people that have served their country. To become part of STAR Vets you have to be currently serving in the Armed Forces or have served in the past and be able to provide proof of service. If you currently are serving in the military, all we need is a "Letter of Service" from your commanding personnel office. It must be on letterhead, list the years and months you have been in the Armed Forces and be signed by your commander. If you are retired or have left the military service, all we need is a copy of your DD-214 or Honorable Discharge papers.
