The Blue Star Mother's Organization was started in 1942 in Flint, Michigan by a few mothers' who were looking for support while their sons were overseas. Throughout the past years, the group has grown to encompass other family members. The group is known to collect items for care packages to send to troops, hold meetings for emotional support during deployment periods and ultimately, bring families together that are dealing with relatives serving in war.
