...the two organizations realized the opportunity to go further and create a lasting tribute to those who are fighting for freedom at home and abroad.

The site is home to an online community encompassing family and friends of service personnel representing all five branches of the military – the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Coast Guard – including those on active duty, veterans and fallen heroes.
Golden Star USA offers anyone the opportunity to create a Patriot Page in honor or memory of any member of the U.S. Armed Forces, past or present. This page provides a showcase for the honoree’s record of service and commendations as well as a forum where friends and family can share their memories and stories by posting comments.
Collectively, all of the Patriot Pages comprise the Patriot Hall, a living monument to those who have served in conflicts over the past century. Visitors to the site can search the Patriot Hall to find a member of the Golden Star registry by name and unit, salute them with a personal tribute on their Patriot Page and read posts contributed by other members of the community.
The concept for the site was the product of a collaborative partnership between Fame Foundry and Autumn Letendre, founder and CEO of the Golden Star USA Foundation.
Autumn approached Fame Foundry with the goal of establishing a platform through which she could promote the foundation and its mission, which is to provide marriage retreats and family counseling services for active duty and honorably discharged troops. As plans for the site evolved, the two organizations realized the opportunity to go further and create a lasting tribute to those who are fighting for freedom at home and abroad as well as to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service of their country.
Autumn Letendre’s drive to help others stems from her own personal tragedy. Her husband, USMC Captain Brian S. Letendre, was killed in 2006 during his second tour of duty in Iraq, after he had voluntarily returned to the front lines as part of a special team training Iraqi army recruits. Now as a Gold Star widow, she is dedicated to advancing the mission of the Golden Star USA Foundation to serve military families who are struggling with the same challenges she and Brian experienced during his deployments.
