For those not aware of this unique recognition, if you have a scout/scouter who give their lives in service of their country, the unit can affix a gold star to the troop/pack flag.
I have been reading a lot of past posts, and while I do serve in the military, I believe this applies to police officers and firefighters as well since they are serving our country.
The requirements are vague. I am not certain it means the person has to have perished by they enemy on a deployment. It is for members who died while serving their country. To my understanding this is for past and present scouts/scouters.
But, this may only be a recognition for gold star families.
