Gold Star Luminary Initiative

Gold Star Luminary Initiative

Gold Star Family Day is on September 25th!

On Gold Star Family Day*, we come together to honor those who have lost a loved one serving in the U.S. military by lighting a luminary on the last Sunday in September.

Throughout America’s history, from the Revolutionary War to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, families have seen their loved ones heed the call of duty; and with that duty comes the ultimate burden that these families must bear. Lighting a luminary on Gold Star Family Day lets them know they don’t stand alone.

*Gold Star Mother’s Day was designated by a joint Congressional resolution in 1936 and has evolved in recent years to be known as Gold Star Family Day. Each year since, the day has been observed by presidential proclamation.
