For someone who has lost a family member in defense of our nation and its borders, the gold star emblem is a mark of pride and sorrow – the joy of a loved one’s service to the nation and pride in his or her accomplishments tinged with the desolation of their loss.
Capture that joy and celebrate the life lost by wearing this commemorative insignia. Minted in shiny bronze, hand-finished with an antique patina, hand-enameled, protected with a lacquer coating, and featuring a double safety clutch-back clasp to affix your insignia firmly to cap or lapel, your display will honor your family member’s last full measure of devotion to all whom you meet.
The traditional design has been enhanced by adding oak leaves emblazoned beneath red translucent enamel symbolizing the love, strength, and courage exhibited by the families of the service members. The field of field of white symbolizes truth, sincerity, purity, peace, hope and protection, while the gold star itself symbolizes generosity, wisdom, glory, and faith, and is placed upon a blue translucent enamel stripe representing valor.
The Gold Star Family Pin is the tribute those who have lost a loved one on America’s behalf can wear despite their grief.
Whether you are buying this commemorative insignia for yourself, or you are planning to present one as a memorial to someone you know who was proud of their family member’s ultimate commitment to liberty during the war, these insignia are intended to be displayed at veterans’ events and parades, at reunions, at clubs, and especially in daily life. Pinned to a lapel or a cap, it will be worn with pride by the men and women whose sacrifice was just as powerful in defense of freedom as the family member who was lost.
