Show Your Support for Gold Star Families
Thousands of luminaries have been lit on the last Sunday in September for over a decade. In 2007, the founder and staff at Marine Parents understood that although there has been a presidential proclamation since 1936 to honor Gold Star Mothers, there was no nationwide call for action to show support and remembrance of the sons and daughters of Gold Star Mothers. It was decided that we would ask folks to light luminaries in one of our newsletters that went out to 50,000 Marine Parents and family members. The response and feedback was tremendous.
Show your support and take the pledge. Complete our online form TODAY, then mark your calendar for the last Sunday in September every year to light a luminary for Gold Star families, beginning on September 29, 2019.
