Our core focus is on the decades spanning World War I through the Vietnam War. Generations of sacrifice and service. Many volunteered to serve. Others were asked to join. Each situation as unique as the individuals involved.
We have located images and some life stories for 8,038 of these California Gold Star veterans. That is a great start. However, our important work is not done.
With the help of our supporting organizations, and visitors like you, our research and public outreach continues. There is a worthy goal to place a face and some life story to these names.
