For Media Professionals

The U.S. Army Installation Management Command (IMCOM) created this site, GoldStarPins.org, and the public service announcements featured here. This is part of the Army's on-going commitment to take care of the families of our fallen brothers and sisters. Please join us in educating the American public on the significance of the Gold Star or Next of Kin lapel buttons and the importance of remembering, respecting and honoring the surviving military families who wear them.
