This is a Blue Star Service pin. I wore it everyday my youngest son was deployed to a war zone halfway around the world. I proudly display this same symbol on the back of my vehicle. After all these long years of our nation fighting the war on terrorism, it’s sad to know that many Americans do not know the significance of this symbol and what it stands for.

  1. Dear Kathleen,

    Having not had a child serve in the military (although we certainly encouraged it) I was unaware of the blue star. Thank you for sharing this and thank you for your generosity in sharing your husband and son.



    1. Rochelle,
