April fifth is designated as Gold Star Spouses’ Day, a recognition of those whose spouse was killed in a line of duty in combat. The Gold Star is a tradition that began during World War One when military families would fly flags with blue stars, representing each family member serving in uniform. If that loved one died, the blue star was replaced by a gold star. Today, family members wear gold star lapels to honor those killed in combat. Gold Star Spouses’ Day honors these families and brings awareness to resources available to them.

Greetings my name is Rich,
I own U.S Veterans and I am a Veteran. I am making a website to help and inform US Veterans. I have many sites I own so I am a little slow at times. For those of you that have been following me this is my final answer for this website U.S. Veterans! I will be populating and updating it over the next few months as the site grows I hope to open it up more for veterans to log into and help and inform others of their experiences by early 2021.. I hope you find something helpful here and be sure to check back for updates. I have many news sites, you will find the RSS Feeds for those sites on U.S. Veterans.
