NH Gold Star Mother's Day
This Sunday is NH Gold Star Mother's Day....
New Hampshire Gold Star Mother's Day is observed on the Sunday following Easter. On this day NH honors surviving parents and families of fallen service members -- specifically those who died while on active-duty.
The term "Gold Star" originated during World War I. Americans displayed flags in homes, businesses, schools and churches bearing a blue star for each Family member serving in the military. Families stitched a gold star over the blue star to honor those members who died during military service.
National Gold Star Mother's Day is observed on the last Sunday in September.
Please take a moment on April 8th to remember our NH Gold Star Mothers and the Gold Star Families of NH
