National Gold Star Mothers' Day honors the mothers and families of fallen military service members.

The observance began during World War I. It was created to recognize and honor those who have lost a son or daughter who served our country in the United States Armed Forces. 

A gold star symbolizes a family member who died in the line of duty while serving the United States Armed Forces.

Gold Star mothers and families know the immeasurable cost of fighting for the ideals we believe in, and they know the pride that comes with exemplary service to America. ~ President Barack Obama ~ September 23, 2011 ~ Presidential Proclamation.

Take a moment to think of the moms and families who have lost oved ones in military service.
