    This is only a brief example of Christine’s service. This selfless and inspirational Blue Star Mother is dedicated to helping our service men and women. She organizes packaging parties to send supplies to our troops, she regularly visits with elderly veterans who have no family and she creates community fundraisers for wounded veterans. Christine is truly an outstanding individual and reminder of how we all should be.
