Gold Star Mothers and Families Day

Gold Star Mothers and Families Day is Sunday, September 29. It is a day for people to recognize and honor those who have lost a son or daughter while serving the U.S. armed forces. In his proclamation, President Obama said, “On this day, we remember our commitment to the Gold Star mothers and families who carry on with pride and resolve despite unthinkable loss. We recall our sacred obligation to those who gave their lives so we could live ours. As a grateful Nation, we declare that we will never forget their sacrifice, and we renew our promise to build a future worthy of their devotion.”
