Philip Busch, President of Southern Eagle Distributing and the Peter W Busch Family Foundation, surprised Gold Star Families with a donation to their monument fund at Veteran’s Memorial Park in Port St. Lucie .
The Gold Star Families Memorial Monument will honor families who have lost a family member protecting the US. Without their sacrifices, the freedoms we enjoy could not have been preserved.
“It is an honor to support the Gold Star Families,” said Busch. “The Veterans and the Gold Star Families have made great sacrifices to keep us safe and free. Thank you for all that you have done!”
The United Veterans of St. Lucie County, Vietnam Veterans of America and several other groups are raising money to build a new monument at Veteran’s Memorial Park and join several other monuments recognizing the sacrifices of our veterans in Vietnam, Korea, World War II and more.
A dedication ceremony is being planned for Sept. 25 in recognition of National Gold Star Mother’s Day.
