When I was serving in the U.S. Army in Vietnam, mail day was always made more meaningful when I received a care package from home. That is why when I heard that our San Mateo County Blue Star Moms needed help raising funds for postage to send quarterly care packages to our troops deployed overseas, I was honored to lend a hand. And as a proud Vietnam Veteran, I truly appreciate my colleagues support for this Measure K request.
For those who don’t know, Blue Star Moms is a national organization of mothers, as well as fathers, grandparents, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, and other family and friends of those who are serving in the United States Armed Forces. Our local chapter will receive up to $8,000 in Measure K District-specific funds to help them continue to support our troops.
