HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

On Gold Star Mother's Day this Sunday, the U.S. Army honored mothers and families of fallen service members in a ceremony at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.

They placed the boots of their loved ones along with 40 handmade wreaths of honor at the foot of the Lady Columbia statue.

The term "gold star mothers" dates back to World War I.

The group includes anyone whose loved one has died while serving in the armed forces.
