Governor Hochul is illuminating landmarks all over NY State!

There have been fourteen landmarks illuminated by Governor Kathy Hochul for the needs. It’s that Sunday in September that has now been recognized as Family’s Day and Gold Star mother’s Day. In regards to Gold Star Families, this is in reference to those who have lost a loved one while serving during an era of conflict. Gold Star is in usage of World War I while referring over Blue Star of the United States Service Flag.

State capitals like that of Albany, New York, all across the United States are recognizing the Gold Star Mother’s and Families by way of lighting buildings in old to honor families’ sacrifices.

New York State is installing several Gold Star recognition for Parents with their continued services and assistance.

New York and their MERIT or Military Enhanced Recognition Incentive and Tribute is a scholarship for families or service members losing their lives while serving the nation.

Hochul is interested in illuminating The Lake Placid Olympic Jumping Complex, MTA LIRR – East End Gateway at Penn Station, Fairport Lift Bridge over the Erie Canal, The “Franklin D. Roosevelt” Mid-Hudson Bridge, State Fairgrounds – Main Gate & Expo Center, Empire State Plaza, Alfred E. Smith State Office Building, Kosciuszko Bridge, The H. Carl McCall SUNY Building, State Education Building, Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, One World Trade Center and the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge.

New York State gives this program to ensure that the services and help keep on coming for individuals who have already given so much as is. The state allows for Gold Star organizations through the state, in addition to local county veteran service organizations for awareness of programs to help out the Gold Star families. Every year, the last Sunday has to be nationally seen as Gold Star Mother’s and Family’s Day. That tends to make the most sense overall.

The whole point of the celebration, according to Viviana DeCohen’s statement is that New Yorkers everywhere “understand the meaning of service before self and embody this philosophy each day in their continued work to honor the legacy of their loved ones who made the ultimate sacrifice for our State and Nation. It is our solemn duty and honor to ensure they receive the highest quality support and care which we strive each day to continue providing for them.” This was said at a public press conference earlier today. If that sentiment is not inspiring to the whole of New York State, then the landmarks being illuminated in gold sure will be.
