Gold Star Sweatshirts Honor Fallen Service Members
The order deadline is Friday, October 20, 2023. Once all sweatshirt orders are collected, we'll ship gifts directly to Gold Star family members.
In collaboration with Survivor Outreach Services of Iowa, the Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation, and Iowa Select Farms, we are pleased to extend a gift of remembrance, honoring the profound sacrifice of cherished Service Members in observance of Gold Star Mother’s and Family’s Day.
While nothing can ever replace our Fallen Service Members, we hope that properly recognizing Gold Star families offers solace through the support, appreciation, and remembrance of loved one's immense sacrifice.
