My husband internment at Arlington was April 5th 2016. I found out about Gold Star Wives of America on that day. I have just joined, please let me know if there is a chapter near me. Very interested in learning more.
I believe this date is for 2015 only. The Senate has not, to my knowledge, passed a resolution yet for any date for Gold Star Wives Day for the year 2016. These resolutions, as I understand it, must be passed on a year by year basis.
