The Idaho Gold Star Families Memorial Monument Plaza in Pocatello will be a beautiful and reverent setting. The monument will be surrounded by 44 gold stars, one for each of Idaho’s counties. Spaced around the edge of the plaza will be five eagle feathers, representing each of the state’s federally recognized Native American tribes. The massive gold star in the center of the plaza will recognize the loss experienced by loved ones when a service member makes the ultimate sacrifice for our nation. Finally, the monument itself recognizes and honors the service member who laid down their life.

The Idaho Gold Star Families Memorial Monument Plaza will be located on land donated by Portneuf Development LLC, one of the developers of Pocatello’s new Northgate District, an integrated, multi-use planned community being built on the north end of the city.
