Advisory Council

The advisory council involves thoughtful leaders who regularly provide advice to the Gold Star Mission Leadership, and serve as a resource to help guide the direction of the organization and navigate its future.

We are a group of people that have a calling to preserve the legacy by honoring our fallen heroes through activities, scholarships and events. The Gold Star Mission is an opportunity to ensure that these service members’ names live on forever, and that their sacrifices create opportunities to enrich the lives of others. Thus, we must Never Forget.


Gold Star Mission was created by veterans to honor the fallen. Too often their names get lost. This group of fellow soldiers decided that the fallen soldiers names’ would live on forever! See the full story, here!
