Celebrating America’s Gold Star Families and Honoring our Combat Veterans
As the following Preamble to our Constitution states, the Gold Star Dads of America was created to bring together the “gold star” fathers in a single community, enabling us to honor and remember our sons and daughters, and to support one another in our loss. First and foremost, we are a Gold Star Family support organization. But we are much more than that, we are American Patriots.
Preamble to Gold Star Dads Constitution
For Faith and Family , we associate ourselves together for the following purposes: To uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America; to safeguard and transmit to posterity the principles of faith, family and freedom and to preserve the memories and honor of our sons and daughters .
We pledge to consecrate and sanctify our brotherhood by our mutual devotion to America’s veterans, military families and each other and to encourage a sense of individual obligation to our community, state and nation.
Gold Star Dads Objectives
Our National objective is to provide public awareness of America’s Gold Star Family Community and to celebrate and honor America’s combat veterans and their families. Further, we endeavor to assist and support, were ever possible, other veteran projects from around the nation thus making a lasting impression in the lives of our veterans by creating a positive outlet for the Military and Civilian communities to unite in a single effort.
“Fathers Standing United for Faith, Family & Freedom”
Our motto is not just a catch phrase that looks good on a shirt or vest, it is a way of life;
Ordinary men fortified by the strength of our Faith in God, standing together to form an unbreakable brotherhood
specifically chartered to carry on the mission of Freedom handed back to us by our brave sons & daughters.
We have been given a great honor but an even greater responsibility, one that can only be accomplished by standing tall & proud with other Patriots. If this sounds like something you have been missing in your life, come join us and experience the full impact of the remarkable legacy your children have left for you.
Are you ready to step up and be counted? To carry on your Son or Daughters Mission?
I am already a Member and I want to Form a Gold Star Dads Chapter in my state.
