Gold Star parents and families were invited to join the Survivor Outreach Services and the American Legion for a recognition ceremony in their honor the morning of Saturday, Sept. 24. at the Lieutenant Colonel Lionel A. Jackson Armoryon, St. Croix
Gold Star parents and families were invited to join the Survivor Outreach Services and the American Legion for a recognition ceremony in their honor the afternoon of Sunday, Sept. 25, at the Patrick U. George American Legion Hall.
