Commemorating 6,000 service members killed in Iraq & Afghanistan

On April 26th,  we marked a tragic milestone: 6,000 U.S. service members have been killed in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  We mourn for these lost lives, as well as those who’ve taken their own lives as a result of their experiences. We extend our deepest condolences to all Gold Star families, and honor those who have chosen to speak out and channel their grief into ensuring that no other family goes through what they have gone through.

What you can do:

  • Volunteer to send condolence cards to Gold Star families who are MFSO members. To volunteer, write to
  • Let other families know about the resource page we provide to help families cope.
