On Thursday, May 26, 2022, HUD held its annual Memorial Day Ceremony to honor Fallen Heroes at their Headquarters in Washington, DC. Gold Star Wives along with Gold Star Mothers Kelly Swanson, and Yvonne Green, and Gold Star Dad, Garry Green were in attendance. Also, in attendance were American Gold Star Mothers President, Jo Ann Maitland, and American Gold Star Mothers, 1st Vice President, Sarah Taylor. After a moving ceremony of music from the United States Army Band, and a wonderful speech from Major General Gregg F. Martin, United States Army, Retired, Mental Health Advocate, the Gold Star Mothers and Wives were presented with beautiful certificates in honor of our Heroes. Jo Ann Maitland and Potomac Gold Star Wives of America, Inc. President, Donna Eldridge, placed the Memorial Wreath. Taps was played by Tom Sneeringer, Bugles Across America. We look forward to attending this ceremony each year.
