The Thumb Chapter of the Blue Star Mother’s of America, Inc. (BSMA) will celebrate their sixth year of service to local military families, veterans and soldiers on Veteran’s Day 2009.
The organization was chartered on Veteran’s Day 2004 with help from mothers and dads of then currently serving military men and women from the Huron County area. The group was designed to serve families in the Huron, Tuscola and Sanilac county areas.
Since the first initial meeting one important function remains part of every Blue Star Mother meeting…soldier updates. In this portion of the meeting, mothers and family members of soldiers give an update as to where their soldier is stationed, when they last heard from the soldier, what their job is, deployment information, and soldier stories.
The “moms” share special events like upcoming weddings, soldier leave (vacation) dates, graduation and or special training education, and the arrival of grandchildren.
