[April 06, 2014] On April 5th, we paid respect to the Gold Star Wives of America 69th anniversary of the founding of their organization. Its goal is to provide support for the spouses and children of those in the Armed Forces who lost their lives. This organization has outstanding leaders who should be commended on their great works.
While most have heard of Gold Star Mothers, few know about Gold Star Wives. Gold Star Wives was formed at the end of World War II and had Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt as one of its founding members.
