Help families of fallen heroes

An item from a fellow veterans service organization in the Bay Area.

Honor our heroes’ sacrifice by helping their families.

Gold Star Mother’s and Family’s Day is 9/25
Dear Michael Barbour,
Every September, we pay tribute to the parents and families of our fallen military heroes. Each one lost a loved one who bravely served our Nation.
As a fellow patriot, you appreciate the sacrifices made by military individuals. So, I’m sure you would agree they deserve our honor and respect. And that we owe it to them to do what we can to help their families left behind.
That is why I am asking you to make a gift today. Your generosity will provide solace and comfort to people like Dianne Layfield, whose son died in Iraq, through programs like our Gold Star Parents Honor and Remembrance event. You’ll also ensure that the memories of our Country’s heroes live on through our Tribute Wall. Every dollar you give will help Commemorate, Educate, and Serve America’s defenders and their families.
“Here we can cry, laugh, grieve, and heal among others who have shared the same heartbreak of losing our loved ones in conflict.”
— Dianne Layfield, Gold Star Mom of Lance Cpl. Travis Layfield
“I knew that my son would always be remembered [here]. That’s one of the biggest fears that Gold Star families have: that our children will be forgotten. That’s not going to happen.”
— Yolanda Vega, Gold Star Mom of Senior Airman Jonathan Vega Yelner
Please give today. I cannot think of a better way to honor our fallen heroes than by helping those who love them most.
Semper Fidelis,
Michael A. Rocco Signature

P.S. Your gift now will help keep alive the legacy of those who gave their lives to protect us.
After two years of COVID cancellations, we are thrilled to be holding our 2023 Gold Star Parents Honor and Remembrance event March 1-3!
