BEDFORD, Va. – The National D-Day Memorial in Bedford is getting ready to unveil Virginia's first Gold Star Families Memorial Monument.
It represents the sacrifice of families who are left behind when a military son or daughter is killed in action.
The monument at the D-Day Memorial will have a unique look unlike any other Gold Star Memorial in the country. It will include the story of the Bedford Boys and honor all military families who lost loved ones.
"Just an opportunity to bring everything full circle and let them know we recognize your sacrifice as a family and your loved ones' sacrifice is not forgotten," said Angela Lynch, with the National D-Day Memorial.
The Gold Star Monument will be unveiled Monday at 11 a.m.
