Resolution honors Blue Star Mothers

Rep. Doug LaMalfa was part of a bipartisan group of House of Representatives members yesterday who introduced a resolution marking August as "Blue Star Mothers of America Month."

“This resolution serves as a well-deserved recognition of appreciation for the massive contributions and sacrifice of the Blue Star Mothers, an organization that has been doing great work for our troops and veterans for the past 71 years,” LaMalfa said. “At considerable personal expense, these women, in the spirit of patriotism, have provided the support and encouragement that our service members depend on as they serve to keep our country free and safe. I am proud to join colleagues from both sides of the aisle to honor these remarkable women and celebrate the contributions they have made to this great nation.”

The resolution honors the Blue Star Mothers of America, Inc., a non-partisan and non-political organization comprised of 11,000 members from 42 states. Blue Star Mothers are those whose children or grandchildren serve or have served in the military.
