Dear poolee, recruit, Marine, and Veteran family members,
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.
Even though large Luminary events won't likely be possible this year, it is still possible to show your support for Gold Star Families. Even lighting one Luminary on your front porch will show that their loved ones sacrifice has not been forgotten.
We would like to ask each of you to reach out to your State Capitol to get permission for you or just a handful of people in your small circle to light luminary bags at your State Capitol Building on the evening of Gold Star Family Day, September 27, 2020. Then send us your photos so we can share them with our Gold Star family members.
You can learn more about how you can reach out to your State Capitol in the article below.
God Bless and Semper Fi,
Tracy Della Vecchia
Founder and Executive Director
