JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO (January 29, 2013) – The Army announced today that it will release three public service announcements over the next year to increase awareness of DoD-issued gold star and next-of-kin lapel pins.

Fox Sports plans to air the first PSA Sunday, in the half-hour before kickoff of Super Bowl XLVIII.

The pins are designed to signify the loss of a loved one in support of our nation. Although the gold star pins have been in existence for decades, many Americans are unfamiliar with their meaning. The PSAs were developed to help educate and inform the public of the significance of the pins.
