It is vitally important for our country to remember the ultimate sacrifice paid by brave Americans who died serving in combat. Let's also remember another very special group this Memorial Day, Gold Star Wives. Gold Star Wives Of America, Inc. (GSW) was founded in 1945 and is a service organization of military widows whose spouse died during service.
This group supports widows and widowers in a number of ways. Not only dot hey provide support and friendship, they also volunteer at VA hospitals and participate in Memorial Day and Veterans Day activities. Another important role for GSW members is assisting widows and widowers in navigating the state and federal benefits available to them. What a wonderful service that might otherwise be too daunting for a grieving spouse.
