Gold Star Family Day

  • Each year we gather on Patriots Point to honor the families who have lost a loved one in service to our country. We gather around a monument that was unveiled on the grounds of Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum on January 27, 2018. The SC Gold Star Families Monument was provided by the Hershel “Woody” Williams Medal of Honor Foundation as part of a nationwide initiative to raise similar monuments across the country. The monument at Patriots Point is the first of its kind in South Carolina, and the 31st such tribute in the country. To read more about the monument please visit the Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum page.
