The Outer Banks Chapter of the Blue Star Mothers of America, Inc. was chartered in February 2008. Our current president, Pam Buscemi, was the driving force behind organizing a chapter near her home after being a part of the BSM of NC Ch#1 in Raleigh, a three-hour drive from the Outer Banks. 

On February 16, 2008 seven local women met at a local restaurant and signed a charter to become the Blue Star Mothers of the Outer Banks. We now number 20+ full time members representing every branch of our Armed Forces. 

Our main focus involves supporting our deployed, whether they are one of our own or someone recommended through our contacts. We send out care packages as often as possible. The local community does a wonderful job supporting our efforts by gathering supplies for our packages and making monetary donations to help with mailing costs. We participate in local parades and festivals to get the word out about supporting our troops.
