On Gold Star Family Day*, we come together to honor those who have lost a loved one serving in the U.S. military by lighting a luminary on the last Sunday in September.
Throughout America’s history, from the Revolutionary War to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, families have seen their loved ones heed the call of duty; and with that duty comes the ultimate burden that these families must bear. Lighting a luminary on Gold Star Family Day lets them know they don’t stand alone.
We ask those who light luminaries, whether it be at home or at an event, to please share your photos with us so we may spread the word and allow Gold Star Families everywhere to see that their loved one's sacrifice will never be forgotten! You can send your photos to us at email@example.com!
God Bless and Semper Family!
