"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.
