  SERVING THOSE WHO SERVE U.S.

Welcome to Lodestar!

                                             

Effective August 31, 2014 the Alameda County Blue Star Moms will no longer be a chapter of the Blue Star Mothers of America, Inc.

Our Mission to support our Troops, Veterans, Military Families and those who serve the U.S. will continue with Lodestar, a local nonprofit

We hope that you will continue to support their Mission as we will be, standing with them as Blue Star Families in support of who they are and what they are doing; continuing the commitment to Service.

At this time, we are no longer accepting donations via our website.  However, you can still donate to the cause by sending your tax deductible donation to Lodestar at PO Box 2006, Fremont, CA 94536-0006

We thank you for your support, financially and otherwise. It has been an honor to assist our military and we look forward to continuing with Lodestar in this endeavor. 



 You may contact us via regular mail at: P.O. Box 2006, Fremont, CA 94536 or via email at: fremontbsm@yahoo.com

Our Mission

Serve Those Who Serve U.S.

Our Purpose

To raise awareness within our community of the needs of our U.S. service members and those who have served our Country; enlisting the assistance of our local community in support of these needs through various programs.  We honor the sacrifices that our U.S. service members, their families and many individuals have made and continue to make; we ensure that we will continue to assist them with their needs through support, resources, education and friendship.

Our By-laws, Code of Conduct and governing documents are in process with the California State Attorney General in pursuit of our nonprofit status. We do not have members but encourage volunteers to spread the word about our commitment to assisting our military, veterans and families, we do not endorse any particular person in any other organization or association to speak on our behalf.

I'm a Blue Star Mom

I'm A Blue Star Mom

We wear our hearts on our sleeves
You see the tears in our eyes
You know we are hurting
But you don't ask us why
 
We start each new day
With a prayer on our lips
That our babies are all safe
In the air, on the ground and in ships
 
We fly all our flags and
We wear all our pins
Waiting for the day
Our child soldier comes in
 
We have our bad days
At work and at home
Trying hard not to cry
Until we're alone
 
We think of them always
We pray they are safe
We dread that one phone call
The car and the wait
 
We are Mothers doing now
As Military Mothers have been
Pledging Allegiance to our Country
Our Armed Forces Women and Men
 
We want you to know
That it's no easy task
To let go of what you cared for
And know they might not last
 
So whenever you see us
Wearing our Ribbons and Blue Stars
Know that we are just waiting
For our Soldier, our baby, our heart.
