65 of Connecticut’s finest have lost their lives since 9/11. Driscoll Cares mission is to let the Gold Star families know that the sacrifice of their child was not in vain and they are remembered by the citizens of Connecticut. Driscoll Cares will have 5 letters to each Gold Star family and 1 MILLION signatures attached to the letters to be presented at the state capitol. In honoring Connecticut’s Fallen Heroes we also acknowledge all of our soldiers who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice across our great nation.
The seeds for this project have been planted. A team is being assembled to see this project to fruition. The team currently assembled includes: Gold Star mothers and their families; Representatives from all branches of our Armed Forces (Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Navy); elected and government officials; business community; clergy; associations and students. Driscoll Cares target date for presentation and honor is Veterans Day 2021.
