GOLD STAR
MOTHERS
The Gold Star Mothers monument honors the mothers who sons and daughters gave their life in the service of our country. The monument is dedicated to all mothers who know the grief of losing a child in the service of our country.

Incorporated on January 5, 1929, under the laws of the District of Columbia, Gold Star Mothers are committed to:
  • Keep alive and develop the spirit that promoted world service;
  • Maintain the ties of fellowship born of that service, and to assist and further any patriotic work;
  • Inculcate a sense of individual obligation to the community, state, and nation;
  • Assist all veterans of all conflicts and their dependents in the presentation of claims to the Vetarans' Administration, and to aid in any way in their power the men and women who served and died or were wounded or incapacitated during hostilities.
  • Perpetuate the memory of those whose lives were sacrificed in our wars.
  • Maintain true allegiance to the United States of America.
  • Inculcate lessons of patriotism and love of country in the communities in which we live.
  • Inspire respect for the Stars and Stripes in the youth of America.
  • Extend needful assistance to all Gold Star Mothers and, when possible, to their descendants.
  • Promote peace and good will for the United States and all other nations.
The memorial is located at Veterans Plaza at the north end of Traxler Park, and is accessible from Traxler Park Road, north of its intersection with Hyatt Street, Janesville, Wisconsin 53545.
