NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — There was a special message in light at Grand Central Terminal, Penn Station, the Kosciuszko Bridge and the World Trade Center on Sunday.
Those New York City landmarks were illuminated in gold in honor of Gold Star Families Day.
Gov. Kathy Hochul ordered 13 locations across New York state to honor the families of military members who have been killed in action.
The families of our fallen men and women in uniform understand the true and painful price of freedom — coping with loss and unspeakable grief. Today, on Gold Star Mother’s and Family’s Day, we recognize their enduring pain and honor their resilience.
