An organizational meeting to charter a southwest Kansas chapter of Blue Star Mothers is set for 2 p.m. Saturday at the Dodge City VFW, 901 N. 13th Ave.
Blue Star Mothers of America Inc. is a nonpartisan, non-political organization created as a support system for mothers with children in military service. Member chapters participate in a number of national projects.
Spearheading efforts to organize the southwest Kansas chapter is Margaret Butcher, whose son, James, is currently stationed in Afghanistan with the 101st Airborne Division. James is an Army Ranger based at Fort Campbell, Ky.
"James went into the Army right out of Dodge City High School in 2006," Butcher said in a recent phone interview. "It was something he had been planning since he was six or seven years old."
