The Blue Star Mothers of America is a Congressionally-chartered, non-partisan, not-for-profit organization formed for the purpose of supporting America’s military, veterans, and their families, and to foster patriotism. The Rochester, New York Blue Star Mothers Chapter 8 was founded on April 16, 2011.
We sent nearly 1000 pounds of personal care items, snacks and valentine wishes to deployed troops in the Pacific, Afghanistan and a hospital in Kosovo this year. It was possible because of heartfelt donations from a grateful community. Each box costs approximately $15 to ship. Thanks to our wonderful corporate sponsors and our wonderful community for helping to make this happen!

I am the mother of a United States Service Member.
My child gave me this title.
I will give him a heart full of wonder at his accomplishments and a voice that praises his desire to serve.
I will place my faith in his military training and in God’s protection
I will give him the prayers that will follow him where I cannot.
I will be strong when I want to cry and brave when I want to cower.
He will know that I am behind him every step of the way.
Because I bear the title of Mother of a United States Service Member.
