Gold Star Mother's and Family's Day
Gold Star Mother’s Day began in the United States in 1936. Every last Sunday of September since then when a service member dies while on duty a Gold Star lapel button is issued to the surviving family members of the fallen service member. This allowed members of the fallen’s community to know the price their family had paid for service to their country.
When a son or daughter of a parent joins the US Armed Forces during times of hostilities their mother receives a service flag with a blue star. In the event their child dies in the line of duty a gold star is given to the mother of the fallen and that flag can be displayed to show the service and sacrifice of that family.
There are many ways a fallen’s family can reach out to the community of fellow fallen families during the last Sunday of September. They can attend official gatherings at military installations or veteran organizations such as the American Legion. This is an important opportunity for many families to grieve and find solace in the child’s sacrifice to their country.
