HISTORY – BLUE STAR MOTHERS OF AMERICA, INC.
On January 22, 1942, the Flint News Advertiser printed a coupon asking Mothers of servicemen to return the coupon after filling it out. The following February 1, 300 mothers net in the Durant Hotel in Flint, Michigan. Captain George H Maines, who had conceived the idea for this group, acted as the chair for this first meeting. After receiving over 1000 responses from the ad, it was decided to form a permanent organization. In June of 1960, the organization was chartered by Congress.
