Description:
Starting in World War I, an American family would hang a gold star in their windows to honor a child killed in military service. The mothers of these children were known as Gold Star Mothers. In 1928, a group of 25 of these mothers met in Washington, DC, to establish the American Gold Star Mothers, Inc., to support grieving families and provide service to wounded soldiers and veterans. Their legacy of service is an important yet often unknown chapter in American history. This book presents the first comprehensive history of the organization and its members, including over 100 photographs, and incorporating over 8 decades of archival material from newspapers, magazines, and correspondence. This collector’s edition tells the fascinating story of these brave mothers who chose to honor the memory of their fallen sons and daughters by volunteering to help veterans and military families around the country.
