Gold Star Spouses Day is an opportunity to honor the courage and sacrifice of those military spouses who have lost their husband or wife in service to our nation.
“The first Gold Star Wives Day was designated Dec. 18, 2010. Since 2012, the Senate has passed a resolution designating Apr. 5 as Gold Star Wives Day. Per recent guidance by the Department of the Army, this day is now observed as Gold Star Spouses Day.” from USArmy.mil.
The Gold Star symbol dates back to World War I, when in 1947 Congress approved the official Gold Star Lapel Button.
Let’s remember the spouses and the families of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.
