Gold Star Mothers/Family Day
September 28, 2025
Gold Star Mothers/Family Day is observed on the last Sunday in September. This day honors and recognizes the families of U.S. military members who have died while serving their country. The term “Gold Star” comes from the tradition of displaying a service flag with a blue star for each immediate family member serving in the military, and a gold star if that family member died in service. Gold Star Family Day is an opportunity to show support and gratitude for the families of fallen service members, and to recognize the sacrifices that they have made. It is also a reminder to the broader community of the ongoing impact of military service on families, and the importance of supporting them during and after their loved one’s service.
