Gold Star Mother’s and Family’s Day
In 1928 Grace Darling Seibold set out on a journey to find out what happened to her son in World War I. She worked in veterans hospitals in hopes of finding him. Instead she found many more, who like her, were longing to know what had happened to their soldiers. A support network was formed.
Eventually Mrs. Seibold learned of her son’s death and another support group grew out of the need to grieve the fallen together. This group became the American Gold Star Mothers.
The American Gold Star Mothers work tirelessly to provide the necessary support to those who join their ranks. They also function as a service organization in order to continue their family’s service to our country and to honor those who gave their lives for it.
