Navy Gold Star
The Navy Gold Star (NGS) program is a comprehensive Navy Survivor assistance program designed for families of Service Members who died while on active duty. The program provides long-term assistance and support to survivors. Coordinators work with survivors of all branches of service to build resilience and offer continued support as they work to establish a new normal.
NGS coordinators are the survivors’ link to the Navy and to essential support programs and services. These compassionate professionals provide emotional and practical support for as long as it is desired. Coordinators work with the Fleet and Family Support Programs and other military and community organizations to provide appropriate services. Individuals eligible for support through NGS include the widow or widower, children, parents and the next-of-kin of deceased service members.
