Reported to House without amendment (12/05/2011)

(This measure has not been amended since it was introduced. The summary of that version is repeated here.)

Revises the membership eligibility requirements of the federal charter for the Blue Star Mothers of America, Inc.

Redefines "mother" to mean a woman who filled the role of birth mother. Adds, in addition to adoptive mother and stepmother (as in the current charter), foster-mother, grandmother, or legal guardian of a person who is serving in the Armed Forces or has served in, or has been honorably discharged from it (as in the current charter).

Repeals the limitation to service in World War II or the Korean hostilities of the Armed Forces service of the eligible mother's son or daughter.

Allows the eligible mother to be a U.S. citizen living outside the United States. (Currently the charter limits membership to eligible mothers living in the United States.)
