Thank you for taking the time to check out our Memorial Day and other videos that bring awareness to days and symbols that honor our Military heroes.  Please take a few moments to scroll through the pages to learn more about the Gold Star Lapel Button and Lapel Button for Next of Kin of Deceased Personnel.  These two buttons officially represent a military loss. They are presented to the surviving families of our brave men and women who die while on active duty military service to our nation.

The families of service members who paid the ultimate sacrifice deserve our respect, gratitude and the very best support we can provide.  It is our privilege to offer this site as a way to inform, educate and ultimately, to honor the memory of those who gave so much.

When you see someone wearing either the Gold Star or Next of Kin Lapel Button, know that he or she has lost a loved one who selflessly served our nation.


Please explore our site to learn more about what you can do to remember, respect and honor our fallen service members and their surviving families who wear the Gold Star or Next of Kin Lapel Buttons.
