If you still wish to help send care packages to troops overseas there is one program that we recommend you to support.

The LCpl Eric Palmisano Care Package Project

This Gold Star MoM has been sending care packages to troops since her son, Eric, was KIA in April of 2006. The Palmisano Care Package Project is a 501(c)(3) Non Profit Charitable Corporation.

Gold Star Family Day is September 27, 2015.

We ask that you take time to remember the fallen by lighting a luminary on Gold Star Family Day.

Please pledge your support on this special day and encourage your community to light luminaries, honoring members of all branches of the service, including those who have lost the fight after struggling to reintegrate into civilian life.

Our goal is to have as many communities as possible in each state support the families of our fallen heroes.

Thank you!!
