A salute to Gold Star Mothers

MARSHFIELD — Marshfield American Legion Auxiliary Unit 54 celebrates local Gold Star Mothers on the first Monday in every May with a Gold Star Mothers dinner held at the Marshfield American Legion Post 54. American Legion Post 54 members take pride in serving this very special group of mothers each year.
Gold Star Mother Jan Altmann and family members attended the most recent banquet. Jan lost her son, Sgt. Joseph Altmann, a U.S. Army medic, to combat in Afghanistan. Jan and her family work tirelessly in the community to honor the legacy of Joseph and all veterans.
