History

On January 22, 1942 the Flint News Advertiser printed a coupon asking Mothers of serviceman to return the coupon after
filling it out. After receiving 1000 responses from the ad it was decided to form a permanent organization. 

The following February 1st, three hundred mothers met in the Durant Hotel, in Flint, Michigan. Captain George H. Maines,
who had conceived the idea for this group, acted as the chair of the first meeting.

On February 6, 1942 the organization was reported in the Congressional record. Chapters then formed in Michigan,
Ohio, Wisconsin, New York, Pennsylvania, Oregon, California, Iowa and Washington.

In June of 1960 the organization was officially chartered by Congress.
Today, over 11,000 members serve in the BSMs across the USA.

 

About Us

We are mothers who have children serving in the military, guard or reserve or

children who are honorably discharged veterans.

Associate members are welcome and include friends, family and Dads

who want to join us in supporting our military.

We are a non-profit 501(c) 3 service organization supporting each other and

our children while promoting patriotism, assisting at Veteran Organizations

and supporting the families of our Fallen Heroes …



Our primary concern is to support our active duty military service personnel through the
collecting and delivery of care packages, which include a touch of home, to our deployed troops.

That's where our communities and local businesses partner with us,
hosting supply drives and donating funds for mailing the care packages.
