Retired Adjutant General of the Delaware National Guard, Gen. Frank Vavala, presented Delaware Gold Star Representative, Judy C. Campbell with a prestigious award.

The award for excellence was presented, in a private service, at the annual Memorial Day Service, Tuesday, May 30, 2017, at the Delaware Memorial Bridge Memorial Park. This annual service honors the sacrifice of the men and women that have given the “last full measure” in devotion and service to our Country.

There was no more fitting date or location for this presentation than the Delaware Memorial Bridge where Gold Star Mothers, Fathers, Sisters and Brothers gathered to pay their respects.

Delaware Gold Star Program has and continues to bring awareness of the daily sacrifice our Gold Star Families live with. During the private service it was discussed how we now have reserved seating at events for our Gold Star Families, Gold Star License plates, banners and multiple events throughout the year where our Gold Star Families are honored.

Our Delaware Gold Star ladies, particularly love the annual Victoria Tea where the ladies share Gold Star Families do have fun!

Our work is one where we vow to honor the motto of our Vietnam Veterans, “Never Again Will One Generation of Veterans Abandon Another” and we will honor the families whose loved one gave their all!

Delaware Gold Star Representative shared with Gen. Vavala, “Our program has united Gold Star Mothers, Fathers, Spouses, Children and Siblings that never knew there were others that share in their loss.  We’ve come a long way,  but we still have a lot of work to do and we are honored to serve a cause greater than self.”
