To honor our nation’s fallen and their families, a new monument was recently unveiled at Trinity Park in West Palm Beach to ensure they are never forgotten. The memorial monument is designed to honor Gold Star Families who are the surviving family members of military personnel who died while on active-duty or a service-related death. Lauren Berkson, Gold Star Daughter and project organizer of the memorial shared, “There are 100’s of gold star families in Palm Beach County. The goal of this monument is to acknowledge those families and promote awareness and healing.”
The opening ceremonies were documented for a new series called Passport to The Palm Beaches which will be available on The Palm Beaches TV early 2020. More memorial markers and plaques are being erected throughout the County. For more info, visit Palm Beach County Gold Star Families Memorial Monument on Facebook, Friends of Veterans, or FOVWPB.org.
