    We are pleased to announce that the United States Senate has passed a bill (S 615)  to designate April 5, 2024 as national Gold Star Wives Day.  We are grateful to Senator Joe Manchin III of West Virginia for sponsoring the bill, and to both Senator Boozman of Arkansas and Senator Ted Budd of North Carolina for co-sponsoring the bill.

    It is an honor to be recognized again by our U.S. Senate.  Many of you will also have proclamations and designations in your local communities.  Please share with us how you observe Gold Star Wives Day and submit any pictures you may have.

The objectives of the organization are threefold: 1) honoring outstanding members of the BSMA 2) sponsoring a "Fun Night" at convention and 3) providing educational assistance to a Veteran, Active Duty Personnel or BSMA member; or the spouse of a Veteran or active duty personnel. The Josephine Calenda educational assistance fund is dedicated to the memory of Josephine Calenda of BSMA PA22 at National BSMA Convention in Lansing, MI in 1989. Josephine, after many years of active service in BSMA, died that year while holding the office of National Big Dipper President. The objective of Big Dipper Auxiliary has been updated over the years to include Veteran(s) Spouse.
