Gold Star Moms Honored by Military Order of the Purple Heart


Families of the fallen remembered

Guam – The families of Guam’s fallen sons and daughters were honored in a special ceremony at the Nikko Hotel Thursday.

Mothers of the men and women who have died while serving in the U.S. Military were awarded a honorary pin from the Ladies Auxiliary of the Military Order of the Purple Heart.

This was the first time Gold Star Families were honored by the organization on Guam. While the pin was awarded to the moms of the fallen, fathers, wives, siblings and other family members participated in the event. The Ladies Auxiliary plans to begin honoring gold star families on an annual basis, to thank them for their sacrifice.
