With Honor Action Urges Congress to Provide Tax Relief for Gold Star Families


CHARLOTTE, NC – With Honor Action urges Congress to pass the Gold Star Family Tax Relief Act as it completes its legislative work for 2019. This bill, sponsored by For Country Caucus member Rep. Elaine Luria, would ease the tax burden on Gold Star families—families who have lost a member in military service. With Honor co-founder and U.S. Marine Corps veteran Rye Barcott released the following statement:

“It is imperative that Congress votes to pass this legislation and ease the burden on families who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the safety of our great nation. It is during times like these when Congress needs to follow the example of military veterans and work together to get the job done.” In June, With Honor Action launcheda six-figure digital and print buy thanking membersof the For Country Caucus for their leadership on the Gold Star Family Tax Relief Act.

With Honor’s advisory board includes post-9/11 veterans and Gold Star family members — Chris Howard, Ryan Manion, and Medal of Honor Recipient Florent Groberg — as well as prominent American leaders such as Secretary George Shultz, Secretary Robert Gates, Admiral Michael Mullen, Michèle Flournoy, and David Gergen. With Honor Action is a 501(c)(4), which serves as the organization’s policy and social-welfare arm. With Honor has an affiliated federally registered “super PAC” called With Honor Fund.
