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.
Our goal is to surpass the number of pledges and participants from the 2019 Luminary Initiative. In 2019, 394 people signed the pledge and 2,628 people participated. Currently, 143 people have signed the pledge and there are 943 participants. You can help by signing the pledge, if you haven't already, and sharing this newsletter with others to raise awareness of the Luminary Initiative.
God Bless and Semper Fi,
Tracy Della Vecchia
Founder and Executive Director
