Local Woman Volunteers Time Helping Grieving Military Families

Founded Organization to Help With the Loss of Loved Ones

PEORIA, IL - A local woman is devoting her life to helping veteran's families.

Patti smith is the founder of America’s Gold Star Families.

When a veteran dies, Smith and her organization provide resources and a support system--and she doesn't receive a penny for her work.

It’s her actions that make her a CI Hero.
