Gold Star Memorial Foundation- Lacey

Preserving the Memory of our fallen and honoring their families

Gold Star Memorial Monument

The Gold Star Memorial Foundation (GSMF) is a 501c(3) nonprofit that seeks to memorialize the dedication and sacrifice of our local families whose loved one has paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. Our values and mission are aligned with that of our parent organization's mission statement, which states, "To honor, recognize, and serve the Gold Star Families and the legacy of their loved ones who have paid the ultimate sacrifice." Our organization is 100% volunteer-driven, allowing for all proceeds donated go solely towards the establishment of the Gold Star Memorial Monument.

The future home of Lacey's Gold Star Memorial Monument will be located at 521 Sleater Kinney Road, which is right in the heart of the city in the Civic Plaza.

The location was generously provided by the City of Lacey and WSDOT for this project.

The placement of this Gold Star Memorial will honor the Gold Star Families and relatives of our men and women that have sacrificed their lives for our freedoms as service members of the United States Military Armed Forces.

Gold Star Memorial Bricks

Commerative Memorial Brick 4 X8 brick

After a special request came in for a commemorative brick, We thought "What a great idea" the brick would be the same as the 4 X 8 bricks being used at the base of the monument. All commemorative bricks would be available at our groundbreaking event on June 14th, 2021. We are planning for additional dates at this time. 

All Materials are locally sourced from

and created by Reflections Custom Etching of Olympia, WA.

Bricks will be placed initially at the installment of the Monument.  A Ceremony will be held to dedicate the site once completed and all donors will receive an email at that time.

Future bricks will be placed twice a year, before Memorial Day and Veterans Day.
