House Passes Gold Star Family Support Bill
The House passed by voice vote, the “Gold Star Family Support and Installation Access Act” (H.R.3897), sponsored by Rep. Don Bacon (Neb.), that provides installation access for Gold Star families to attend memorial services and unit reunions on military installations. It also extends access to on-base services for surviving spouses who remarry, as long as the dependent children of the deceased service member remain under their guardianship. This FRA-supported bill now goes to the Senate for further consideration.
