Gold Star Mothers Day
According to an article on the Military Benefits website, the American Gold Star Mothers, Inc., a nonprofit organization, has been established for Gold Star Families since 1928. Their mission is to educate, remember, and inspire “true allegiance to the United States of America” as well as offer “needful assistance to all Gold Star Mothers and their descendants. They hold conventions on Gold Star Mothers Day and Veterans Day in addition to partnering with Wreaths Across America in December.
“The times I have spent with Virginia have been times of encouragement and learning. She is wise, knowledgeable, and compassionate. She is an excellent support to me as I move forward in my own life. Virginia makes me feel like I am not alone. She is right there alongside me, revitalizing Upstate SC Gold Star Mothers. This is appreciated beyond measure.” – Debby Whitsitt, Upstate SC Gold Star Mothers President
