Gold Star Mother’s and Family’s Day
Date: Sep 26, 12:00 AM to 11:59 PM
On the last Sunday in September, Gold Star Motherâ€™s and Family Day honors the mothers, fathers, and families of fallen military service members. Also known as National Gold Star Motherâ€™s Day, the day serves as a reminder of the losses suffered by military families.
Since World War I, the observance has provided a way to recognize and honor those who have lost a son or daughter who served our country in the United States Armed Forces.
A gold star symbolizes a family member who died in the line of duty while serving the United States Armed Forces.
