Annapolis, Maryland, USA: You can’t help admire the Gold Star Mothers – an inspiring organisation of American women who have lost a son or a daughter in war.
The support network extends far beyond helping each other to cope with what, for many of us, is unfathomable grief – in fact the Gold Star Mothers also reach out to veterans who have been injured in service of their country, and to fostering a sense of patriotism and respect for members of the Armed Forces.
And so it was with much pleasure that Riviera and Belize dealer Grande Yachts International and brand manager Ned Dozier recently assisted the combat-wounded veterans charity Warrior Events and its organizer John O’Leary to treat these special ladies to a marina dinner and sunset cruise aboard the Riviera Sport Yachts owned by John Bruno and Brian Kennedy in Annapolis.
- Gold Star Mothers was founded shortly after World War I by Grace Darling Siebold of Washington DC, whose son George was deployed to England for combat duty in France. The United States at that time had neither an air force nor fighter planes.
