 Each year, since 1936, on the last Sunday of September our United States President calls on all Americans to display our nation's flag and hold appropriate meetings to publicly express their love, sorrow, and reverence towards Gold Star Mothers and their families.
As fellow Americans we lend our strength to these families who have given so much for our country.
Today, we remember all of you, our Gold Star Mothers.
We honor your courage and your perseverance and the memory of your children
