Gold Star Week & Rally for Freedom was a HUGE SUCCESS! Now What?
On July 4th, Moms for America held the Rally for Freedom at the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C., where more than 40 Gold Star Wives, Mothers and their family members stood united with military families, 9-11 survivors and Americans from across the country to honor those who paid the ultimate price for freedom and stand boldly against the socialism they fought to defend us against.
Academy Award Winning Actor, Jon Voight, joined us as several Gold Star Wives and Mothers spoke including Amanda Jacobs, the Gold Star Mother from North Carolina whose passionate speech went viral only hours after it was given.
While the Rally is over and the Gold Star Families have returned home, our mission to secure the Republic has just begun. We are continuing to reach out to members of Congress to sign the Promise and Pledge to the America People on behalf of those who gave all.

What is a Gold Star Family Member?
“Gold Star Family” is an honor no one wants but holds a special meaning for those who carry the title. “Gold Star” is a recognition given to an immediate family member who has lost a loved one in military service. Gold Star wives have lost their husband in the line of duty, Gold Star Mothers have lost their son or daughter. Gold Star children have lost a parent.
Highlights from Gold Star Week
When Amanda Jacobs, Gold Star Mom from North Carolina, gave her passionate speech we knew it was going viral! Breitbart, live-streamed the event and shard a clip of her speech their Facebook Page. Within just a few hours the video had gone viral and Amanda was on Fox & Friends giving a powerful interview with Pete Hegseth. Amanda is a proud member of Moms for America and passionate promoter of freedom and the values her son gave his life for.
Jon Voight, Academy Award-Winning Actor, Joined Moms for America for Gold Star Week and the Rally for Freedom
We were blown away by Jon Voight’s kindness, support, and genuine passion for freedom. We were so honored to have him be a part of Gold Star Week and the Freedom Rally and it really touched these families deeply to have him join us. And just to show the kind of man he is, as the Gold Star Families were arriving to the stand to take their seats which were wet with rain, Jon Voight had a towel in hand, wiping the seats for them. Some great American caught it all on Camera. And of course, it went viral.
Moms for America hosted Gold Star Wives, Mothers and their families in a powerful week of connecting and celebrating freedom in our nation’s capital. The week included a Gold Star Reception and Dinner, Private Tour of the Capitol with Congressman Louis Gohmert and David Barton, a White House Tour and VIP seating at the President’s Salute to America 4th of July Celebration. Special thanks to Gold Star Mom, Karen Vaughn for helping put the event together, to Jon Voight for believing in us, Phoenix Park Hotel for their exceptional service and hospitality, and our AMAZING TEAM, especially Debbie Kraulidis our Director of Production and Events, for making the entire week a HUGE SUCCESS!
We would want to express our deepest appreciation to Congressman Louie Gohmert and David Barton for flying to DC just for this event to give the most Amazing Capitol Tour ever! Many of the Gold Star Families commented multiple times how impressed they were that they would take the time to lead the tour and flew in just for them to do it. We cannot adequately express what that meant to all of us.
Rally for Freedom
Brietbart live-streamed the entire Rally and thousands viewed it all over the country. It was the perfect start of an amazing 4th of July celebrating 243 years of American Freedom. The speeches by these Gold Star Wives and Mothers were incredibly inspiring and reminded us all the price of freedom and why it is worth fighting for.
Salute to America
It was incredible when following the president’s address, when the Blue Angels burst from behind the Lincoln Memorial in their final majestic flight of the evening, all the Joint Chiefs of Staff came off the stage and greeted every single Gold family. It was amazing to see!
