Gold Star Family members and relatives are those who have sacrificed a Loved One for our Freedom.
The Gold Star Family Memorial was created by Medal of Honor Recipient Hershel “Woody" Williams to remember those families who sacrificed one of their own in the name of freedom. To learn more about the memorial, please visit our Gold Star Families Memorial Monument web page.
