Active Duty Military Outreach is done at a local level by our Gold Star Dads Chapters throughout the United States. We assist & celebrate the active duty military families in many ways. Our special events,include; beach parties with our local Marines, “Unit Mess Calls” (read BBQ’s) at local National Guard Armories and fellowship visits to army Bases, USO & Fisher House facilities.
Active Duty Military Outreach Projects
Gold Star Dads sponsors outreach events on military bases across the United States. Events include Welcome Home Celebrations for returning units like the one pictured on the left. Military Appreciation Day, Christmas Parties and Unit Birthday parties are also regularly scheduled.
Through these events we honor our sons & daughters and thank the Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, & Airmen and their families.
Active Duty Military Appreciation – Gold Star Dads sponsors Military Family outreach events on military bases and at VA Hospitals across the United States. Events include Welcome Home Celebrations, Military Appreciation Day, Christmas Parties, Unit Birthday parties, veterans assistance. Through these events we honor our sons & daughters and thank the Military Families currently serving.
These events are a great way to help the survivors network with other Gold Star Families and at the same time give back to the men & women who have served to keep this country free for over 230 years.
The offer of fellowship and prayer is no small matter to these families. Just knowing that their efforts made a difference and that their sacrifice is appreciated goes a long way in helping them cope with the stress of military life. But we can and must do more.
Contact your local Gold Star Dad chapter for more information on Active Duty Military Outreach events scheduled for your area.
