Congratulations!
The Patriots Initiative has released 
The Directory and SDNC Blue Star Mothers is among those to have qualified. 

Nonprofits serving the needs of the military, veterans and their families, have undergone a comprehensive and rigorous evaluation in order to qualify  for The Directory--a listing of the very best nonprofits providing services to the military  locally, regionally and nationally.  All qualifying nonprofits have been evaluated on eight critical criteria to determine their level of effectiveness, efficiency and use of best practices in their work. The Directory will  change the way inspired donors give to support our armed forces members.

100% of any gift to The Patriots Initiative will directly support those nonprofits qualifying for The Directory through our competitive grants program, or may also
be designated to specific nonprofits listed in The Directory.

Become an "Official Hugger"

A great way to serve our troops is to welcome them home from deployment with open arms, especially those with no family to greet them.

Contact Loretta Cook for more information.
Let them know you are grateful for their service.  There's nothing like it.

Here's what's happening with

San Diego North County Blue Star Mothers

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A MOMS HEART - We have some sons heading home from Afghanistan over the next few months, pray for safe travels and for the moms as they may not get to the redeployment ceremonies to welcome them home. Travel during Nov/Dec is costly and schedules for homecomings are fluid and changes happen.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We are supporting 3 units deployed...315th and 305th Engineering Battalions in Afghanistan, and the 670th MP Company at Guantanamo (FRG - family readiness group leader is one of our new Blue Star Moms).   "American as Apple Pie" campaign  will send apple pies to all 3 units, the families are making donations toward pies that will be to ship directly to APO by Julian Apple Pie Company.

San Diego North County Blue Star Mothers is a support group serving the San Diego area military and families. Our founding mothers first came together in September 2005 and meet regularly to share our worries, pride, and devotion to our children who are now serving in every branch of the military. We are an official chapter of the Blue Star Mothers of America, Inc., a group formed during World War II.

The
Blue Star Mothers of America is a non-partisan, non-political, non-sectarian, non-discriminatory and non-profit organization. We do not support any political candidate, nor do we endorse any religious organization. The military represents all aspects of America, as does our organization. Our mission is to support through service:

- United States military personnel who serve or have served honorably and their families
- Veteran's organizations
- Causes that will benefit military personnel

We hope that you will take the time to look through our web site. If you have a family member or friend in the military, we are here for you. If you are a proud American and want to do something to help, we are developing projects that will tell you how you can make a difference. - Kathryn Hood (Founder)

Our military service person's Mom serves also.....

She worries, she cries, she writes letters, emails, and sends packages.

Mostly she waits and she prays!
