NEW Warrior Wednesday: Gold Star Families – More than Heroes

Date: Wednesday, 5/18/22
Time: 5:30pm – 7pm EST.
Location: 3250 SW 3rd Avenue, Miami, FL 33129, United Way Miami Ryder Room

Join Mission United for Warrior Wednesday Gold Star Families – More than Heroes.  The term Gold Star Family is a modern reference that comes from the Service Flag. Families first flew these flags/banners during World War I. The flag included a blue star for every immediate family member serving in the armed forces of the United States, during any period of war or hostilities, which engaged the armed forces of the United States. If that loved one died, a gold star replaced the blue star. This allowed members of the community to know the price that the family had paid in the cause of freedom.  Nothing can adequately prepare a family for the news that a loved one has died while serving our country, just as nothing can erase the pain caused by that loss. During this special Warrior Wednesday, we will get a chance to pay honor to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice and hear from the families who carry the torch of their loved one in their hearts. We will also get a chance to hear how we as a community can offer our support to a brave group that carries the legacy of our fallen heroes. To register for this free session, click here.
