Colleen Greene (left) and Deb Tanish stand with their respective blue and gold star flags; the blue symbolizing that they either have a son or daughter in the armed forces and the gold meaning a son or daughter who has died while in the service. Following her son’s death in 2004, Tanish has made it her mission to spread the stars meaning and the knowledge of various support groups for blue and gold star parents who do not realize the support system available to them.
