The City of Biloxi has been working with Keesler Federal Credit Union, Gulf Coast Gold Star Families, and the Woody Williams Medal of Honor Foundation to bring a Gold Star Family Monument to the city.
That dream will become a reality at a groundbreaking on Tuesday morning.
A groundbreaking for the Gold Star Families Memorial is set to take place today at 10 am in Biloxi at Guice Park, located just north of the small craft harbor.
Spear headed by a retired Marine who is now a Biloxi resident, the monument is designed to honor families who have lost loved ones in the line of duty.
Located off highway 90 in Biloxi at the Biloxi small craft harbor, the Gold Star Families Memorial will join several other war hero monuments and memorials at the site.
