Our Mission

Helping Those Who Help US 

How We Accomplish This Mission: By providing tangible support and resources to US Military Personnel, US Veterans, First Responders, and their families; while continuing our support of the families of our Fallen Heroes.  We assist in any way that we can to show our continued Respect and Admiration by doing what is necessary and within our power to maintain this support for them and their families each day.

Our Purpose

To raise awareness within our community of the needs of our U.S. service members and those who have served our Country; enlisting the assistance of our local community in support of these needs through various programs.  We honor the sacrifices that our U.S. service members, their families and many individuals have made and continue to make; we ensure that we will continue to assist them with their needs through support, resources, education and friendship.


We are proud to be able to expand our mission to honor our First Responders and their families, offering support and resources when and where we can.

I'm a Blue Star Mom

I'm A Blue Star Mom

We wear our hearts on our sleeves
You see the tears in our eyes
You know we are hurting
But you don't ask us why
We start each new day
With a prayer on our lips
That our babies are all safe
In the air, on the ground and in ships
We fly all our flags and
We wear all our pins
Waiting for the day
Our child soldier comes in
We have our bad days
At work and at home
Trying hard not to cry
Until we're alone
We think of them always
We pray they are safe
We dread that one phone call
The car and the wait
We are Mothers doing now
As Military Mothers have been
Pledging Allegiance to our Country
Our Armed Forces Women and Men
We want you to know
That it's no easy task
To let go of what you cared for
And know they might not last
So whenever you see us
Wearing our Ribbons and Blue Stars
Know that we are just waiting
For our Soldier, our baby, our heart.
