Welcome To The Blue Star Mothers of New Hampshire
Becoming a Military Parent
On behalf of the Blue Star Mother's of America, it is with great honor that we welcome you into the journey of being a military parent!
We are there with you as you cross the bridge to becoming a Blue Star Mother and Father to support you in any way we can.
We are a support group, whose members consist of Mothers, Fathers, Spouses, Siblings, Grandparents, Extended Family and Friends of someone who has or has had a loved one in the military. We support each other, our military and veterans.
Since WWI mothers have hung "Blue Star Flags" in their windows while their children served in the armed forces especially during conflicts or wars.
To be a Blue Mother or Father is an Honor only your child can give to you. The Blue Star stands for hope and pride.
Becoming a military parent continues the life long journey ... of hope and pride. As when your child was born, you were filled with that hope and pride as well as excitement, anxiety, fear and great joy. As you step into the walk of being a military parent that journey continues and once again life changes. You find yourself noticing even more the patriotic symbols all around you, flying your United States flag with a different kind of pride. Thus "Supporting Our Troops" in a way you have probably never before.
Life changes, as your child will hold him or herself to a higher standard, you too will find it changes your life. Forever supporting your child in a different way with even more hope and pride for serving our country to keep our land free.
May you and your child be blessed while this journey of life unfolds!
Remember: "To be a Blue Star Mother or Father is an Honor only your child can give to you!"

The Blue Star Mothers of New Hampshire want to say thank you mothers, fathers, spouses, children, cousins, aunts, uncles, godparents, grandparents, in-laws, and everyone else in the families of these brave military men and women.
May your love and strength be an ever glowing beacon for those who are in the military, whether they be shore duty, sea duty, training, just starting in boot camp, and especially to those fighting in the war.
Thank you for your sacrifices and I hope that if your sons, daughters, husbands or wives aren’t home yet that they return to you soon and safely. And for those who have lost their loved ones, we am truly and most sincerely sorry for your loss and we hope that the love of your families as well as appreciative people who support our troops helps you to cope and continue living each day with strength and blessing.

HERE FOR THE TROOPS AND THEIR FAMILIES
For over 60 years, Blue Star Mothers have always volunteered during tough times. They have worked in hospitals, packed care packages for soldiers, and provided a supportive shoulder to lean on for other Military Mothers and family members. WHAT BEING A BLUE STAR MOM IS ALL ABOUT
Being attacked on our own soil has once again compelled mothers to hang flags in their windows at home proclaiming pride in the fact that we have children protecting our freedom during a time of war. We help Mothers find ways to give back while their children serve our country.
COME JOIN US, WE NEED YOUR HELP
