There are many ways to support our troops, actions more effective than a bumper sticker on your car. Such as supporting the Blue Star Mothers of America. Founed in 1942, they support our troops in many ways. Sending packages, sending letters to those with no families, and a dozen other ways — and supporting each other through the trials of having a child in one of our Armed Forces.
From the Blue Star Mothers of America website, describing who they are and what they do:
We are mothers who now have, or have had, children honorably serving in the military. We are a non-profit (501[c]3) service organization supporting each other and our children while promoting patriotism.
The Blue Star Mothers of America, Inc. is a non-partisan, non-political organization. We do not support any political candidate, nor do we endorse any religious organization. The military represents all aspects of America as does our organization.
We provide support for active duty service personnel, promote patriotism, assist Veterans organizations, and are available to assist in homeland volunteer efforts to help our country remain strong. Blue Star Mothers volunteer in VA hospitals and outreach centers, helping with physical and emotional rehabilitation. We collect medical supplies, food, and clothing. We provide transportation and friendship.
Blue Star Mothers have been active in civil defense since 1942, finding food and shelter for people devastated by hurricane and floods.
