  • Gold Star

    Just a historical note about a tradition that was started by families back during World War II. During the holidays was to display a gold star in the window, for each member of their family that was lost during the war. (From the History Channel).

    OK, how many is everyone putting up (or would put up if they are not going to do it)?

    No one has been lost at war in my family.. I have a very lucky heritage!
    Education is nothing without experience to back it up.

      Those stars are making a comeback. They are being sold by the American Legion, and they signify that the family displaying that star has a son or daughter SERVING overseas in a combat situation.

      There is something different to show that someone from the family died in service, but I can't remember what that was.
      Never make a drummer mad- we beat things for a living!
