(AREA) -- State Representative Terry Brown of Pigeon has submitted a bill that would designate each February 2 as "Blue Star Mothers Day" in Michigan. The Blue Star Mothers of America was founded on that day in 1942 in Flint. According to Brown, the mothers whose children put themselves in harm's way for our country bear a unique burden, and they still do so much for other military families and returning veterans. Representative Brown hopes his colleagues join in supporting the bill. House Bill 5206 has been referred to the House Committee on Military and Veterans Affairs.
