Greetings!

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.

God Bless and Semper Family!
