There is no time like the present to ask your Governor to write a proclamation for Gold Star Family Day. To do so, follow these steps:
-Using a search engine:
look up your state, followed by “governor” and “proclamation.”
For example, Missouri would look like: Missouri Governor Proclamation
-Once you are at the state website (yourstate.gov):
Go to the contact header. Proclamations or request contact will typically fall under this header.
: September 29, 2019
This will be your contact information, as you are the one requesting the proclamation.
-Information about the organization/group is:
The term "Gold Star" describes a family member who has lost a loved one in military service. The Gold Star signified the family's pride in the loved one's sacrifice rather than the mourning of their loss. We honor the legacy of fallen heroes, support the missions and needs of their families, and raise awareness for Gold Star Family Day.
-Sample language of the proclamation:
WHEREAS, many of our brave men and women in uniform have paid the ultimate sacrifice while ensuring our country remains land of the free.
-If you receive a proclamation, please send it to us so we can highlight it in our newsletters and on our website!
