Welcome to the official website for the 2019 Georgia Gold Star Fathers Recognition Event!
Georgia Gold Star Father Day is Saturday, November 9, 2019!
During the 2018 Legislative Session, Resolution 655 passed unanimously in the Georgia House of Representatives. This bipartisan effort officially named November 9 as Gold Star Father Day annually, and State Rep. Rhonda Burnough is going to approach the Georgia State Senate about passing this Resolution.
We touched over forty Gold Star Fathers and their families at the Capitol on November 9, 2017. State Rep. Rhonda Burnough (D-77) is currently collaborating on a similar program with all branches of the military at the Capitol for November 9, 2019.
If you or anyone you know would be interested in recognizing one of Georgia's Gold Star Fathers, please fill out the form below. Thank you for visiting the Georgia Gold Star Father Day website!
