American Gold Star Mothers assist veterans of the Armed Forces and their dependents in the presentation of claims to the Department of Veterans Affairs, for Armed Forces servicemembers who served and died or were wounded or incapacitated during hostilities.
Before they were famous, many truly influential men and women started by serving their country in the US military or grew up in military families.

Supporting American Gold Star Mothers Day

Posted:

In July 2009, the House of Representatives supported the goals and purpose of Gold Star Mothers Day, observed in remembrance of the supreme sacrifice made by mothers who lose a son or daughter serving in the Armed Forces. Congress further urged the President to issue a proclamation calling upon the people of the United States to observe Gold Star Mothers Day with appropriate ceremonies and activities.

As a result, the last Sunday in September is observed as Gold Star Mothers Day.

As Congress noted, "The services rendered to the United States by the mothers of America have strengthened and inspired Americans throughout the history of the United States. Americans honor themselves and the mothers of America when they revere and emphasize the role of the home and the family as the true foundations of the United States. The American mother is a source of moral and spiritual guidance for the people of the United States and thus acts as a positive force to promote good government and peace among all mankind."

American Gold Star Mothers assist veterans of the Armed Forces and their dependents in the presentation of claims to the Department of Veterans Affairs, for Armed Forces servicemembers who served and died or were wounded or incapacitated during hostilities.

The American Gold Star Mothers have suffered the supreme sacrifice of motherhood by losing a son or daughter who served in the Armed Forces. It's our duty as citizens to remember all whose lives are sacrificed in war, and to honor the American Gold Star Mothers on the last Sunday of every September.
