On September 15, United States Senators Cindy Hyde-Smith (MS) and Raphael Warnock (GA) co-sponsored a resolution declaring September 19-25 as National Gold Star Families Remembrance Week.
Sons and Daughters In Touch are deeply grateful for this acknowledgment of ‘The Long Gold Line’ of America’s Gold Star Families: from those lost in World War l – initiating the Gold Star Tradition – to the 13 lost at the airport in Kabul, Afghanistan on August 29.
With the significant majority of America’s Gold Star Families originating from World War l, World War ll the Korean War, and Vietnam War, it is critical to acknowledge the heritage and history of this precious American tradition bestowed on the families whose loved ones were lost defending the nation against her enemies.
