2018 Luminary Initiative Recap
Added October 9, 2018
On the evening of Sunday, September 30, 2018, military supporters across the country came together to show their respect for Gold Star family members and to keep the memories of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of our nation alive.
Events ranged from small to large, from individual family events to neighborhood and community-wide events. Some events had guest speakers, others took place at parks and memorials, and we even had a large presence in New York's 7th district due to Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez's office passing out our luminary bags. The National Museum of the Marine Corps participated Sunday as well, lighting 100 luminary bags in front of the museum.Click here to read more.
