2009 Memorial Day Schedule
On the Monday following Memorial Day, June 1, 2009 the American Gold Star
Mothers and several other groups were invited, by the Veterans
Administration to breakfast at the White
House. The President was very gracious and spent time with each table
greeting many of the moms personally and posing for quite a few pictures as
you can see below.
This group is of special interest to Gold Star Families. They are from
the Air Force Mortuary
Affairs Operations Center at Dover AFB in Delaware where many of our loved ones
first arrived home. The mission of AFMAO is "dignity, honor and respect for
the fallen; care, service and support for their families."
