BuxMont legislators recognize mothers of those deployed in the Armed Forces

(May 28, 2024)

WARMINSTER, May 28 – Legislators from both Bucks and Montgomery counties today recognized the sacrifices made by the mothers of soldiers and sailors deployed in the United States Armed Forces in a ceremony held at the Warminster VFW Post 6493 . State Reps. Brian Munroe, Nancy Guenst, Ben Sanchez and Melissa Cerrato recognized area Blue Star Mothers as May is Blue Star Mothers Month. A Blue Star Mother is any woman living in the United States who has a son or daughter (and in some cases, stepchildren) in the United States Armed Forces, or who has had a son or daughter in the U.S. Armed Forces who was honorably discharged. “As a Navy veteran, I know the difficulties and uncertainties that my family, and in particular, my mother faced while I was deployed,” Munroe said. “Families serve in their own way as they play an important part of keeping morale high and supporting our soldiers and sailors. Thank you to my mother and all the Blue Star Mothers through Pennsylvania and our nation.” “Blue Star Mothers show us what it means to support our troops with unwavering love and strength,” Guenst, an Army veteran, said. “Their sacrifice is a reminder of the heart behind our nation's defenders. In their quiet strength, they inspire us all to honor and cherish those who serve, ensuring that their sacrifices are never forgotten.” Read more
