    U.S. Army North hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open the new
    Survivor Outreach Services (SOS) facility on Ft. Sam Houston. The new facility
    will serve 499 Survivors of fallen servicemembers in South Central Texas,
    including 38 surrounding counties. SOS provides helps to facilitate programs
    and services to surviving Family Members (spouse, children, parents, persons
    in loco parentis, siblings) who have lost a Soldier by ensuring they have
    access to all entitled benefits, helping them foster resiliency, connecting
    them to multi-agencies and non-profit organizations, and keeping them
    connected with the Army.

    Ms. Debbie Agnew, a Gold Star Mom, gave remarks. Following the ceremony, the
    U.S. Army Soldier Show performed in their honor. LTG Mike Ferriter, commanding
    general of the U.S. Army Installation Management Command, hosted the show and
    a reception for the Survivors afterward.

    The Ft. Sam Houston SOS partners with the Blue Star Mothers of San Antonio
    Chapter 4 to co-host quarterly Gold Star Service Flag Ceremonies. SOS also
    holds outreach events like Family Fun Day, an event recognizing Gold Star
    Mothers and Families Day and other Installation events such as Fort Sam
    Houston National Cemetery Memorial Day Ceremony and Wreaths across America.

    SOS also recognizes Gold Star Mother's day, held the last Sunday every
    September. For nearly a century dating back to World War I, military families
    have held the tradition to display the service flag bearing a blue star for
    each Soldier serving in the military. The blue star is covered with a gold
    star representing the Soldiers who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our nation.
    Many Survivors wear the Gold Star pin to remember and honor their Fallen. Available in high definition.
