Blue to Gold
Honoring those who have made the Ultimate Sacrifice
Each year the United States president is requested to issue a proclamation to: call on US government officials
to display the nation’s flag on all government buildings; and to call on people to display the flag and hold appropriate
meetings at homes, churches, or other suitable places on Gold Star Mother’s Day to publicly express the love, sorrow,
and reverence those who are Gold Star mothers and their families.
Blue Star Mothers of America is a national service and
outreach organization, charted by the United States Congress in June of 1960. Blue Star Mothers of America is non-partisan
and has no particular religious affiliation. We are outreach and service organizations in communities all
across America. The sole mission of each BSM Chapter is to serve any and all of our military troops and their families. A Blue Star
Mother is a Mother of a son or daughter who is presently serving active duty or has had a son or daughter that has served
and has been honorably discharged from any branch of our military branches. A Gold Star Mother is a mother who’s son
or daughter has come home as a Fallen Hero.
As a part of our Blue to Gold ceremony we will honor our mothers
or designated family members of Fallen Heroes and present their Gold Star Flag, Condolence Book and other gifts of remembrance.
