Minnetonka, MN, August 21, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- As part of its ongoing commitment to honoring the service and sacrifice of local service men and women, Sempris, LLC made a monetary donation on July 30th to the Minnesota Chapter of American Gold Star Mothers, Inc.
Sempris’ donation will be used to improve the Minnesota Fallen Heroes Display, which goes up each fall at the Minnesota State Capitol, and also travels to schools, churches and organizations throughout the community, to honor the memory of fallen soldiers. The money will be used to purchase new frames, Military Branch flags and new storage containers.
"Gold star mothers" is a term that came into general use with the creation of the service flags used to show that a family had a son in the service (a blue star) or a son that had died in the service (a gold star almost covering the blue star so that a rim of blue still shows). Mothers of slain servicemen came to be known as gold star mothers. The phrase is generic and, through customary usage has come to designate any mother whose child died while on active duty in the military.
A group of gold star mothers met in 1928 and formed the organization American Gold Star Mothers, Inc (AGSM). AGSM is a private organization and you must apply for membership if you wish to join. AGSM is also a non-profit, 501 C(3), organization.
