The Blue Star Mothers’ mission is to support our military and their families while sharing educational information and promoting patriotism.   The Houston Area Chapter’s primary activity is organizing and sending care packages consisting of personal hygiene items, socks, snacks, reading materials and any other items that will lift the spirits of our brave men and women serving in combat zones and overseas.  In the past 16 months, over 1,300 care packages have been sent.  Other activities include participating in numerous veteran and wounded warriors programs, as well as, homecomings and send offs of our military personnel.  Blue Star Moms also attend all funeral services of local fallen heroes to pay homage for paying the ultimate sacrifice and provide support to their families.   More information can be found at www.bsmhoustonarea.orgIt, too, is a 501c-3 tax exempt charity as defined by the IRS.

    
Operation Military Embrace, Inc. is a Texas-based 501c3 military support charity that does its best to Help, Understand, Give and Serve those who have sacrificed so much for America. OME supports wounded/ill military & their families by providing personal “hands-on” support and comfort through regular visits to the San Antonio Military Medical Center, sponsoring a December free PX and drawing at SAMMC, hosting outings (including hunting & fishing trips, and group dinners), providing financial assistance (for up to 10 years after their End of Active Service) in their time of crisis, and sending care packages to deployed troops.




CreatiVets' goal is to offer opportunities of relief and healing for the men and women who have sacrificed so much our country.  Our purpose is to use various forms of art, including songwriting, visual arts, music and creative writing, to help disabled veterans cope with service-related trauma (i.e., post-traumatic stress, or PTS) by fostering self-expression in a way that allows them to transform their stories of trauma and struggle into an art form that can inspire and motivate continued healing.

Ron Hamlin Memorial Fund

We would like to thank the family of Ronald (Ron) Russell Hamlin for naming the Kingwood Fallen Heroes (KFH) as one of two memorial funds established in his memory following his unfortunate, sudden passing on October 26, 2016 while traveling on the west coast. Ron lived a life of passion and meaning and will be missed with great sorrow.

As background, Ron, a former longtime resident of Kingwood, was born in Coffeyville, Kansas in 1944.  He graduated from Coffeeville Junior College and earned a Masters Degree from the University of Houston in 1978.  He married his lovely wife, Joyce, in 1964.  His son, Mason, was born in 1976. During his lifetime, Ron was involved in various businesses in Kansas and Texas and when not working, he enjoyed his family, golf, and motorcycles.  Several years ago, Ron and Joyce moved to the Austin area to be closer to Mason, his wife Jill, and their 3 children, Avery, Austin, and Anders who were truly the light of his life; and, he was their biggest cheerleader.

In 1968, Ron was drafted into the U.S. Army and proudly served his country in Vietnam.  He was passionate about helping veterans and never missed an opportunity to acknowledge those who had also served our great country via the armed forces. That passion was the basis for “KFH” being named as one of the memorial funds.

With agreement of the family, we will soon supplement memorials received and donate those funds (in Ron’s honor) to a local, area charity who supports our veterans and their families with special needs.
