Massachusetts Gold Star Families Tree with Governor Charlie Baker

This year’s Gold Star Families Tree display pays tribute to our Massachusetts Service Members who gave their lives in service to our Nation and the families who carry their legacy forward. Ornaments from their loved ones will be displayed on the tree and serve to remind of the tremendous sacrifices made for our Freedoms. All are welcome to attend and no RSVP required. 

Families of Fallen Service Members are invited to bring a wallet sized photo to place on the tree.  The Gold Star Families Tree will be on display through the month of December in Memorial Hall (2nd floor), Massachusetts State House.  Please contact Military Friends Foundation at 1-84-HELP-VETS or email info@militaryfriends.org for more information.
