Please participate with us and honoring and remembering all of our local residents who are helping to preserve and protect our freedom.
Although many are familiar with the Blue Star Program, the “Blue Star” symbol begin around 400 BC when Alexander the Great made use of it as a sign of great heroism. The Purple Heart also contained the blue Star, but years later it was changed to its present design.
The blue star flag was created in 1917, hanging in the home to denote family members serving in our Armed Forces; each star represents a family member proudly serving our country. The idea spread to include businesses and churches, the star for each employee or member who had gone to war.
The program also was implemented during World Wars I and II, honoring once again the serving our country.
After the September 11th terrorist attacks, the whole country came together again showing their patriotism. There is no better time than now to bring back the “Blue Star Program.”
