GOLD STAR PARENTS

The Blue Star Moms are committed to remembering our fallen heroes and their sacrifices, the burden of which their families will forever carry. Since World War I, when the Blue Star banner that hung in the front window became an unofficial symbol of a military family member serving overseas, the blue star was covered with gold if a service member was lost in battle.

Today, a banner that displays this gold star is given to families whose loved one is lost while on active duty serving our country. The Blue Star Moms present personalized Gold Star Banners to families who so request. For more information contact us at Gold Star Banners

California has lost more service members than any other state. To honor them and their families, the Blue Star Moms partner annually with the Marines Memorial Association in San Francisco to preserve the memory of these heroic men and women.

For the past nine years the Blue Star Moms have co-hosted with the Marines' Memorial Club in San Francisco a reception and dinner to honor our California fallen and to support Gold Star families left behind. During these two days families are comforted, and their children lost to us are honored. Our chapter takes great pride in helping present an event which provides succor and solace to those who are suffering the most, our dear Gold Star families.

We would like to thank the Marines' Memorial Association of San Francisco for sponsoring this event and those who contributed in making it a wonderful tribute to our California fallen Heroes. From the bottom of our Red, White and Blue hearts, thank you!
