The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners presented a Proclamation at their regular meeting on October 9, 2018, proclaiming October 26, 2018 as Citrus County Gold Star Family Day.
Florida and Citrus County owe a lasting debt of gratitude to those who gave their lives in service to secure the blessings of liberty. A debt of gratitude is also owed to our Gold Star Families; parents, spouses, siblings and children who have lost a loved one who made the greatest sacrifice of all in protecting our way of life.
These families will always feel the deep grief of losing that spouse, parent, sibling, son or daughter in both combat and noncombat environments; and these families are due our unwavering support and admiration for the tremendous sacrifices made.
The Board of County Commissioners recognizes October 26, 2018 as Gold Star Family Day in Citrus County and calls the observance to the attention of all citizens.
