Mesquite, TX – September 27, 2021 – On Sept. 26, Mayor Bruce Archer honored Gold Star mothers and family members in a video. On the last Sunday in September, Gold Star Mother’s and Family Day honors the mothers, fathers, and families of fallen military service members. The day serves as a reminder of the losses suffered by military families.
Since World War I, the observance has provided a way to recognize and honor those who have lost a son or daughter who served our country in the United States Armed Forces. A gold star symbolizes a family member who died in the line of duty while serving the United States Armed Forces. On Gold Star Mother’s Day, the nation remembers alongside them. It’s an opportunity for us to pay tribute to their sacrifices and support those who remain behind.
