Tennessee Remembering Our Fallen Display
We will be honoring families of those who have received The Gold Star –
the military award no one wants. The award commemorates the tragic
death of a military member who has perished while in the line of duty.
VHSF hopes to provide a level of comfort to the parents and families that
are left behind.
No one understands the true price of these freedoms like our Gold Star
families, whose humility, even in times of grief, represents the best of our
country. Today, we recognize their sacrifices by listening to their stories,
sharing in their pain and pride, and pledging to do all we can to honor
them and the loved ones they hold close in their hearts.
Through unspeakable sorrow, our Gold Star families suffer from loss that
can never be restored. This day is a small way for citizens to show their
respect and their appreciation for the Gold Star Families’ lost loved ones
and their sacrifice that each of these families suffer daily.
