                Proclamation 9328 of September 24, 2015

                
Gold Star Mother's and Family's Day, 2015

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                At every crossroads in the American story, courageous 
                individuals of all backgrounds and beliefs have 
                answered our Nation's call to serve. Today, the 
                sacrifices of our fallen heroes echo in safer towns and 
                cities, countries and continents--resonating throughout 
                a world they forever made freer. Their legacies are 
                solemnly enshrined in the history of our eternally 
                grateful Nation, as well as in the hearts of all who 
                loved them. Today, we honor the Gold Star Mothers and 
                Families who carry forward the memories of those 
                willing to lay down their lives for the United States 
                and the liberties for which we stand.

                The proud patriots of our Armed Forces never serve 
                alone. Standing with each service member are parents, 
                spouses, children, siblings, and friends, providing 
                support and love and helping uphold the ideals that 
                bind our Nation together. While most Americans may 
                never fully comprehend the price paid by those who gave 
                their last full measure of devotion, families of the 
                fallen know it intimately and without end. Their 
                sleepless nights allow for our peaceful rest, and the 
                folded flags they hold dear are what enable ours to 
                wave. The depth of their sorrow is immeasurable, and we 
                are forever indebted to them for all they have given 
                for us.

                Despite their broken hearts, the families of these 
                warriors are full of love and they continue to serve 
                their communities and comfort our troops, veterans, and 
                other military families. Our country is constantly 
                inspired by their incredible resilience, and in their 
                example we see the very best of America. On this day of 
                remembrance, we honor our Gold Star Mothers and 
                Families by living fully the freedom for which they 
                have given so much, and by rededicating ourselves to 
                our enduring obligation to serve them as well as they 
                have served us.

                The Congress, by Senate Joint Resolution 115 of June 
                23, 1936 (49 Stat. 1985 as amended), has designated the 
                last Sunday in September as ``Gold Star Mother's Day.''

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, do hereby proclaim September 27, 2015, 
                as Gold Star Mother's and Family's Day. I call upon all 
                Government officials to display the flag of the United 
                States over Government buildings on this special day. I 
                also encourage the American people to display the flag 
                and hold appropriate ceremonies as a public expression 
                of our Nation's gratitude and respect for our Gold Star 
                Mothers and Families.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                twenty-fourth day of September, in the year of our Lord 
                two thousand fifteen, and of the Independence of the 
                United States of America the two hundred and fortieth.
