This new BSMA Chapter will serve the Cape Fear Region, including Brunswick, New Hanover & Pender counties. 

Blue Star Mothers of America was founded in 1942 in Flint, Michigan. The organization’s mission is to provide support for active-duty military personnel, Veterans and Gold Star families, promote patriotism, assist Veterans organizations and to assist in homeland volunteer efforts to help our country remain strong. Blue Star Mothers of America is a 501(c)3 charity organization that is overseen by Congress. 

Blue Star Mothers of America members are mothers, stepmothers, grandmothers, foster mothers and

female legal guardians who have children serving in the military, Guard or Reserves, or children who are Veterans. These mothers support each other and their children while focusing on their mission every single day and will never forsake our troops, our Veterans or the families of our Fallen Heroes. We also welcome associate members which can be anyone that would like to help us fulfill our mission. Currently, there are over 6,000 members from over 200 Chapters throughout the nation.
