Thank you to our 1st Vice President, Paula Davis for purchasing goodies for two military units – US Air Force and US Navy. The Maryland Chapter donated postage. This is a thank you note from one of the deployed units.

Everyone thanks you and the MD Gold Star mothers! Thanks for always being my church mother and reminding me to count it all joy whenever I face trials. Your hope and smile always gives me strength to keep going. God Bless (en espanol: Dios te Bendiga)

The Mock Code Coordination Team would like to thank the Maryland Chapter Gold Star Mothers for sponsoring our team and contributing the T-shirts. The purpose of this mock event allowed our team to educate nurses on how to Save our Nations Veterans Lives by practicing CPR.

On behalf of the MILIUS crew, the junior Sailors and I just wanted to say THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for the wonderful care packages from the GOLD STAR MOTHERS!!! If only you all could see the smiles and the joy on the faces of the Sailors that received the goodies the moment was priceless. I truly appreciate the support that you give me as a cousin and as a Service member. God’s blessings truly know no end! We pray that God will continue to use you all mightily and that you will continue to be the salt and the light sharing the love of His great Kingdom. I’m sending postcards to the Gold Star Mothers from the crew and I would like to send a Chiefs Coin to The President of your Maryland Chapter. Please send me her name and a good address to mail it when you get a chance. Love you Much!!

Stay in His Service

Gold Star Mothers,

Just wanted to let you know that we received the three boxes of toiletries and food treats from you and wanted to send an acknowledgement, our appreciation and deepest gratitude for your thoughtfulness. It cheered the Soldiers here at —– Hospital immensely. Being away from family is difficult, especially during special occasions or holidays, but it’s great knowing that people are thinking about us and keeping us in prayer.

Thank you for your kindness, heartfelt thoughts, and generosity. We’ve hung the card in the hospital foyer for others to read.
