Catherine Chapman of Amherst and Christina Ball of Royalton are two proud mothers. Chapman has two sons serving overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan and Ball's son Jeffrey just completed a tour of duty in Iraq, and in now based at Fort Drum. The mothers have now teamed up to create a new chapter of The Blue Star Mothers of America in the Buffalo Niagara Region. The national non-profit organization consists of mother who have children serving in any branch of the military and helps support them and their families. Organizers of this new chapter hope to link up with other groups to send care packages, cards, letters, and other items to our servicemen and servicewomen who are serving overseas.
