Blue Star Markers

The organization National Garden Clubs, Inc. serves as the lifeline for the miles and miles of Blue Star Memorial markers in America that serve as living tribute to the men and women who serve in the Armed Forces. Since the program began over 70 years ago, more than 3,000 Blue Star markers of all three types have been dedicated across the country. Often, one or more Federation of Garden Club Districts collaborates on acquiring the markers and maintaining them in perpetuity. Often a memorial garden is planted with the Blue Star markers. After each marker is installed, the club conducts a dedication ceremony inviting the public. For more information, visit the National Garden Clubs, Inc. website.
