Gold Star Families Remembrance Day

Gold Star Remembrance Day

Arkansas U.S. Senator Tom Cotton along with Senators Joe Manchin (D-West Virginia), Martha McSally (R-Arizona), and Doug Jones (D-Alabama) last week introduced a resolution expressing support for the designation of March 2, 2019 as “Gold Star Families Remembrance Day.” Gold Star Families are those who have lost a family member in combat. Currently the United States observes Gold Star Mother’s Day and Gold Star Spouses Day. Congressman Bob Latta (R-Ohio) introduced companion legislation in the House of Representatives last month.
“America will always honor servicemembers who fall defending our flag. That means honoring families who carry on their memory, and the sorrowful burden of life after the death of a loved one. It has been 90 years since President Coolidge approved a pilgrimage so Gold Star families could visit the resting places of their loved ones. We can continue that legacy today by designating March 2, 2019 as Gold Star Families Remembrance Day, to be observed by all Americans in recognition of those who sacrificed greatly for our sake,” said Cotton.     MORE
