The first Gold Star Wives Day was designated Dec. 18, 2010. Since 2012, the Senate has passed a resolution designating Apr. 5 as Gold Star Wives Day.
The Gold Star is a symbol of loss dating back to World War I. In 1947, Congress approved the design, manufacture and distribution of the official Gold Star Lapel Button, a symbol worn by next of kin of service members of the armed forces who lost their lives in war and armed hostilities of the United States.
