Gold Star Families monument to be dedicated
Mary Kemper/Staff Writer
It will be a major tribute to mothers, fathers and all family members of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country when the Treasure Coast Gold Star Families Memorial monument is dedicated Sept. 26.
The dedication coincides with the fact that Sept. 26 is Gold Star Families Day in the U.S.
It all began with the United Veterans of St. Lucie County, who put together a committee from members of the Jack Ivy 666 Detachment of the Marine Corps League, and members of the Michael Bradley Chapter 566 of the Vietnam Veterans of America.
