Claire Manning-Dick

Dear Gold Star Members,

I am Claire Aca (Sunflower) Manning-Dick from Owyhee, NV, located on the Shoshone-Paiute Indian Reservation. Where I come from, we consider our military spouses the Warriors of our families and community. When a Veteran is MIA, KIA, returns home disabled, or comes home not quite the same, we hold an honoring ceremony.  Prayers are said to heal and restore balance to the entire family and our community. In a similar way, the Gold Star Wives of America organization is one whose values are to honor, protect, and care for one another.

I am so proud to be a member of GSW and honored to lead as your president.  We come from every part of this nation in the world.   We are young and we are old.  We come from every cultural background, creed, and religion. What makes GSW so exceptional are the bonds that hold us together. I joined GSW because of what it stands for: Our united spirit of duty and patriotism that our spouses fought and died for.

I look forward to meeting each of you and will continue to welcome new members across the nation.  Please reach out to me anytime.

Claire Manning-Dick
National GSW President
