BVA Proudly Supports Gold Star Families Remembrance Day 

 

BVA is proud to support legislation to designate March 2, 2019 as " Gold Star Families Remembrance Day."  This day honors and recognizes the sacrifices made by the families of veterans and members of the Armed Forces who gave their lives to defend freedom and protect the United States.  March 2, 2019 marks the 90th anniversary of President Calvin Coolidge signing an Act of Congress that approved and funded the first Gold Star pilgrimage to enable Gold Star families to travel to the grave-sites of their loved ones who died during World War I.
