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.

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!
