Picture This On Granite is proud to have been chosen as a selected vendor and partner in the manufacturing and installation of this Gold Star Families Memorial Granite Monument, located in Olathe, Kansas, United States.
Gold Star Families Memorial Monuments are a two-sided tribute made of black granite. One side bears the words: Gold Star Families Memorial Monument, a tribute to Gold Star Families and Relatives who sacrificed a Loved One for our Freedom.
The other side tells a story through the four granite panels: Homeland, Family, Patriot, and Sacrifice. At the center of this tribute, is a silhouette of a saluting service member which represents the Legacy of the Loved Ones who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our Freedom. Together, these features tell each community’s unique story based upon the Pillars of the Foundation.
A Gold Star family is the title, which is reserved for families of military members who have died in the line of duty. It is meant to honor the service member’s ultimate sacrifice while acknowledging their family’s loss, grief, and continued healing.
The organization dates back to WWI, when military families displayed service flags featuring a blue star for every immediate family member serving in the Armed Forces. Individual military family members who lost a loved one also started to be referred to as “Gold Star Wives,” “Gold Star Mothers,” and so on.
