State Rep. David Martin today gave special recognition to a national organization with roots in Genesee County that remains dedicated to supporting service members and veterans.

Martin, of Davison, sponsored a House Resolution 24 declaring Feb. 1, 2023, as Blue Star Mothers Day in Michigan.

Blue Star Mothers of America was founded when 300 mothers of World War II service members first met at the Durant Hotel in Flint on Feb. 1, 1942.

“Today, 81 years later, Blue Star Mothers throughout the United States pack and ship thousands of care packages every year to service members deployed overseas,” Martin said. “They also volunteer to help homeless veterans, provide support for Wounded Warriors, visit hospitalized veterans, honor fallen heroes during funeral services, and offer a compassionate community for the loved ones of those serving in harm’s way.”

Blue Star Mothers of America now has about 200 active chapters representing thousands of military families.
