Fairfield OH—Gold Star Families Memorial Monument

One of Ohio's new Gold Star Families Memorial Monument honoring the families of servicemen and women killed in the line of duty is now a reality.

Jim Bell was the Chairman of the committee for the Gold Star Family Memorial Monument and an Honorary Board Member, Hershel Woody Williams Medal of Honor Foundation. The committee for the memorial was comprised of several Gold Star Families from the Fairfield, Ohio area.

A Gold Star Family member can be any relative: mother, father, stepmother, stepfather, adoptive or foster parents, wife, husband, child, stepchild, adopted child, brothers, sisters, half brothers or sisters, grandparents, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces or nephews who have sacrificed a Loved One for our Freedom.

The Gold Star Family Memorial was created by Medal of Honor Recipient Hershel “Woody" Williams to remember those families who have made the ultimate sacrifice. To learn more about the memorial, please visit our Gold Star Families Memorial Monument web page.

This memorial monument was dedicated on May 25, 2015.

"Dying for freedom isn't the worst thing that can happen. Being forgotten is." Georgie Carter-Krell (Mother of Posthumous Medal of Honor Recipient Pfc. Bruce W. Carter, USMC- Florida
