BLUE STAR MOTHERS OF AMERICA, INC., ANNOUNCE MRS. CINDY MC CAIN
AS NATIONAL SPOKESPERSON

Blue Star Mothers of America, Inc. is proud to announce its appointment of Mrs. Cindy McCain as our national Spokesperson. Operating for over 72 years, the organization is a Congressionally-chartered Veterans Service Organization whose mission is to support the members of the Armed Forces, veterans and families of our Fallen Heroes. Best known for our care packages that are mailed throughout the year, and affect the lives of more than 250,000 actively serving military personnel, the members also donate countless hours as volunteers at local Veterans Administration health facilities. There are more than 200 chapters nationwide, each chapter serving the needs of its local community.


“Mrs. McCain is a nationally-recognized wife, mother, successful Arizona businesswoman, and a philanthropist who works with international nonprofit organizations. She is also an active member of her local Blue Star Mothers Chapter and knows firsthand the rollercoaster life of a mother of a currently serving, or previously served member of the Armed Forces, is on” stated Judy Dorsey, National President of the organization. “Her willingness to be our speaker and help the millions of military Moms throughout the nation speaks volumes about her dedication and service to those defending our country”, Dorsey added.

"I am humbled and proud to be chosen to represent this great organization. I wear my two star blue star pin proudly. I hope to raise awareness for all the wonderful things, from care packages to advocacy for our children that are suffering from the effects of war, these women do to support not only each other, but all the sons and daughters serving in our armed forces around the world" said Cindy McCain.

The Blue Star Mothers of America, Inc. is a non-partisan, non-political, non-sectarian and not for profit organization. We are mothers, stepmothers, grandmothers, foster mothers and female legal guardians who have children serving in the military, guard or reserves, or children who are veterans. We support each other and provide support to active military troops, volunteer to help veterans in general, and VA facilities in particular, and support the families of our Fallen Heroes, by fostering a sense of patriotism and respect for members of the Armed Forces.

Our organization focuses on our three missions every single day and will never, ever, forsake our troops, our veterans or the families of our Fallen Heroes.
