State Rep. Bob Bezotte introduced legislation to designate February 1 of each year as Blue Star Mother’s Day.
Blue Star Mothers are mothers, stepmothers, grandmothers, foster mothers or legal guardians with children serving, or having served, in the military, guard or reserves.
Blue Star Mothers of America, Inc. was founded in Flint, Michigan in 1942. Since that time, these mothers have worked tirelessly on behalf of veterans and their families in perpetuating the memory of men and women who have served our country as members of the armed forces.

Our troops are selfless and courageous. Considering all the sacrifices they make for our country, providing a way for veterans to enjoy the great outdoors when they return home is just one of the many ways we can show our gratitude. That’s why I am co-sponsoring legislation that would allow veterans to obtain hunting and […]
As I sit down to write this update, it’s Thursday morning and the House is preparing to vote this afternoon on a package of bills to create extreme risk protection orders. The partisan plan, brought forward by the Democrat majority, creates a process that allows the government to seize weapons from any individual who others […]
