The Air Force initiative refers to parents, grandparents, siblings and adult children of Airmen killed in action, international terrorist attack against the U.S. or military operations while serving outside the U.S. as part of a peacekeeping force. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Jordyn Fetter) Gold Star Families – forever in the Air Force family
Losing a loved one is difficult for any family to experience. That is why the U.S. military has programs in place to ensure that the families of fallen service members are cared for in their time of need. One of these programs is Gold Star Families. Gold Star Families exist for all branches of the military to offer guidance and counseling to any immediate family members affected by the loss of a service member. However, unlike most branches, the Air Force defines a Gold Star family as a family whose service member passed away while in an area of operation during conflict. On May 15 of this year, the Air Force began offering Gold Star families access to Air Force bases around the country. This new development allows Gold Star families to enter an installation without the need of an escort.
