Who and Why We Are
Share |
Who we are:
  • The widows/widowers whose spouses died while serving in the Armed Forces of the United States,  or as result of service-connected disabilities.
  • The widows/widowers of service personnel of all armed conflicts involving the United States of America.
  • The mothers and fathers of children whose parents gave their life in the service of the country.
  • The widows/widowers of service personnel of all ranks, races, and creeds.


Why we are:


"Only a service spouse understands the sorrow and problems of another service spouse.”


Each legislative session of Congress brings up new legislation directly pertaining to military survivors. Members of Gold Star Wives appear before various House and Senate Committees on issues concerning compensation, educational benefits, medical care and other programs pertaining to the welfare of military survivors.


We believe surviving spouses and dependent children need an organization dedicated solely to their needs, concerns, and welfare.


We believe that United we are stronger, and that together we stand and divided we fall and are forgotten.
