Blue Star Mothers of America was first started in 1942 in Flint, Michigan. This is the original chapter, BSMA Jack Pitcher Chapter 1.
The group has been somewhat inactive for the past several years and has just recently had several new members join, and it is hoped that the group will become more active again and consistently grow.
It was first started as a support group for mothers of military men and women. It still has those properties but also now consists of several volunteer type activities, for instance, sending troop packages, or sewing adaptive clothing for injured military men and women. And other family members can join as "associate" members, no longer limited to only mothers.
