The resolution commemorates Feb. 1, 2024, as Blue Star Mother’s Day in the state of Michigan and was unanimously approved by the state Senate.
“The Blue Star Mothers of America do tremendous work both honoring and caring for the men and women who served this nation,” said Outman, R-Six Lakes. “They honor those who gave their lives, visit injured service members in the hospital, and help care for and provide support to families who have lost a loved one. The work they do is deserving of so much more than we are capable of doing to thank them.
“My own family has been a recipient of the care provided by Blue Star Mothers. To this day, I can’t thank them enough for what they did for me and my family.”
