Gold Star Family members and relatives are those who have sacrificed a Loved One for our Freedom.

The Gold Star Family Memorial was created by Medal of Honor Recipient Hershel “Woody" Williams to remember those families who have made the ultimate sacrifice. To learn more about the memorial, please visit our Gold Star Families Memorial Monument web page.

"Dying for freedom isn't the worst thing that can happen. Being forgotten is." Georgie Carter-Krell (Mother of Posthumous Medal of Honor Recipient Pfc. Bruce W. Carter, USMCD - Florida)

Any excess funds raised for this Gold Star Families Memorial Monument Project will be used to further the mission of the Woody Williams Foundation of honoring Gold Star Families and their fallen Heroes through the establishment of Gold Star Families Memorial Monuments in communities across the United States, offering scholarships to Gold Star Children as well as sponsoring and hosting outreach programs and events for Gold Star Families.
