Franz co-sponsors Blue Star Mother’s Resolution

LANSING — State Rep. Ray Franz, R-Onekama, co-sponsored House Resolution 204 last week to declare Feb. 2 Blue Star Mothers Day in the state of Michigan.

Blue Star Mothers is a national organization founded in Flint in 1942 that consists of mothers whose sons and daughters have served honorably in the United States Armed Forces.

Blue Star Mothers help to ease the transition for veterans returning to civilian life, as well as recognize and honor those soldiers who were killed or wounded while serving the country.

“I am so incredibly moved by the work that these fine women do to ensure that our veterans are welcomed home and adequately taken care of,” Franz said. “All of the hard work that the Blue Star Mothers organization does greatly impacts people’s lives here in America and provides a tremendous amount of good for the veterans community and society as a whole.

The Blue Star Mothers organization focuses their mission every single day to never forsake troops, veterans or the families of fallen heroes. For more information, visited bluestarmothers.org.
