Summary
"Gold Star Mothers" were mothers of servicemen killed and buried overseas during WWI. In the 1930's, the U.S. government offered the mothers an opportunity to visit their sonsí graves at no expense. This is the story of one such group, accompanied by Second Lt. Thomas Hammond and nurse Lily Barnett, who made the trip to Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery in France.
Critique
A wonderful story featuring strong women from varied backgrounds with shared grief. Reporter Griffin Reed uncovers a special surprise for Cora.
