Gold Star Mother’s Day

From the Vietnam Veterans of America:

On Sunday, September 27, at 1:15 p.m., the Gold Star Mothers will lay a wreath at Arlington National Cemetery’s Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, followed by an observance program on the north side of the Memorial Amphitheater.

Gold Star Mothers are women who have been changed forever, through the ultimate sacrifice of their sons and daughters who sacrificed their lives in the service of the nation. These mothers are an inspiration to all Americans. They exemplify courage, grace, and fortitude in the face of incalculable sorrow. Enacted June 23, 1936, the 74th United States Congress designated “Gold Star Mother’s Day” as a national commemoration for the American people to pause and honor the continued service of the Gold Star Mothers.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download
