The Midlands Blue Star Mothers is a support through service organization in the central South Carolina area. We are moms, joining together to share our pride, our devotion and our worries for our sons and daughters currently serving in all branches of the Armed Forces of the United States, and our sons and daughters who are now veterans. We first came together shortly after the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001. We are an official chapter of the Blue Star Mothers of America, a group who formed during World War II.
HOW TO JOIN OUR CHAPTER
Membership is open to mothers or stepmothers who have sons and/or daughters currently serving, or who have been medically or honorably discharged from the five service branches of the United States, as well as the National Guard, Reserve and the Merchant Marine. For more information about joining our local chapter, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org Associate members include all other family members, spouses and friends of those who are currently serving or who have been honorably discharged.
“It’s the military, not reporters, who have given us the freedom of the press. It’s the military, not the poet, who have given us the freedom of speech. It’s the military, not the politicians, who ensure our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It’s the military who salute the flag, who serve beneath the flag, and whose coffins are draped by the flag. If you care to offer the smallest token of recognition and appreciation for our military, pray for our men and women who have served and are currently serving our country, and pray for those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for freedom.”
