Welcome to the Dept of New Jersey of American Gold Star Mothers. If you're a Gold Star mom from New Jersey and would like to meet others in your situation please contact us.

APRIL/MAY JERSEY JOTS:

HAPPY EASTER TO MY DEPT. OF NJ GOLD STAR MOMS

Although spring is officially here, let’s hope Apri 1st will be a start to the warm weather we have been waiting for. I do see signs of the spring flowers poking their heads through the cold hard dirt. Maybe with the warmth of the sun we will get great results.

Events and ceremonies are beginning to come in for April and May. I hope you will have the opportunity to join us when you can.

I am happy to say, we have now presented 142 Honor and Remember Flags in NJ for our Fallen Heroes. The families are so pleased when they receive this gift from the generous sponsors who help us out. There are always new requests for our NJ Gold Star Family License Plates.
