S is for Star

Memorial Day is this coming next Monday so I thought I would try and find something S that would fit the occasion.  Sitting in my sun room is this great little framed STAR.

I've had this little framed piece quite a few years. I used to collect patriotic memorabilia  more than I do now but I couldn't let go of this.

The back says "As a token of our loyalty and respect to the member of your family who serves in the Armed Forces of America".

I imagine this was given out for WWII families considering the frame, glass and actual cloth STAR, paper and cording.
 
 
 
 
 


Thank you to Mrs. Nesbitt and Roger for the opportunity to play along each week on our alphabet adventure.

Wonderful collectible.
I really like the patriotic theme and the age that shows.
Very original for the letter S.

It's always sad when they are gold stars, noting a lost member of the Armed Forces.

I wonder what happened that this didn't stay with a family member. I can't imagine letting go of it.

It is interesting that someone let something special like the star leave the family.

I am considering a post on Gold Star Mothers for Memorial Day. That one isn't "gold" but I'm wondering if it is a gold stat none the less.
