Gold Star Program

For those service men and women who make the ultimate sacrifice, the Gold Star is awarded to the service member’s immediate family when their loved one is killed in action or dies while honorably serving during war time. The Gold Star Service Flag is displayed the same way as the Blue Star Service Flag, but with an additional smaller Gold Star centered within the Blue Star to create a blue border surrounding the Gold Star.  Since the Gold Star program’s inception, the family members of four local service members have received the Gold Star:  Johnny Carillo, Jr., Garret D. Dandini, Caleb Manning and Blue Rowe. Below are the three members of the armed forces who have been so honored for their sacrifice to protect their country.

Information on the service men and women is on the City's website to allow all members of the community to recognize those who are serving in the armed forces. This information is also placed on display in the City Hall lobby for one week leading up to the 4th of July holiday. Please click here to download the application.
