Marine Minute: Gold Star Mother's And Family Day
Sept. 23, 2022 | 1:00
I’M LANCE CORPORAL DYLON GRASSO WITH YOUR MARINE MINUTE.
GOLD STAR MOTHER’S AND FAMILY DAY IS TRADITIONALLY OBSERVED ON THE LAST SUNDAY IN SEPTEMBER. THIS YEAR IT FALLS ON SEPTEMBER 25TH.
GOLD STAR MOTHERS AND FAMILIES REPRESENT THOSE WHO’S SONS AND DAUGHTERS HAVE PASSED AWAY IN THE LINE OF DUTY WHILE SERVING IN THE UNITED STATES ARMED FORCES. THE HOLIDAY IS OBSERVED TO EXPRESS OUR NATION’S GRATITUDE AND RESPECT FOR OUR GOLD STAR FAMILIES.
DURING WORLD WAR I, GRIEVING MOTHERS WOULD HONOR THEIR LOVED ONES BY PLACING SYMBOLS OUTSIDE THEIR HOMES, TYPICALLY A FLAG WITH A BLUE STAR. IN 1918, PRESIDENT WILSON AUTHORIZED MOTHERS TO WEAR A BLACK ARMBAND WITH A GOLD STAR IN HONOR OF THEIR FALLEN LOVED ONE.
AND IN 1936, THE 74TH CONGRESS DECLARED THE LAST SUNDAY IN SEPTEMBER AS GOLD STAR MOTHER’S DAY. IT WAS IN 2016, THAT PRESIDENT OBAMA PROCLAIMED THE HOLIDAY AS GOLD STAR MOTHER’S AND FAMILY DAY.
EACH YEAR ON GOLD STAR MOTHER’S AND FAMILY DAY, THE UNITED STATES PRESIDENT CALLS ON ALL AMERICANS TO DISPLAY THE NATION’S FLAG AND ENCOURAGES THEM TO HOLD APPROPRIATE CEREMONIES, TO PUBLICLY EXPRESS THEIR LOVE, SORROW, AND REVERENCE TOWARDS GOLD STAR MOTHERS AND THEIR FAMILIES.
THAT’S IT FOR YOUR MARINE MINUTE. FOR MORE NEWS AROUND THE CORPS, GO TO MARINES.MIL
