Blue Star Markers in Washington State

The Blue Star marker program was started in 1944 by the New Jersey Federation of Garden Clubs as a memorial to U.S. veterans of World War II. The National Council of State Garden Clubs, now called National Garden Clubs, Inc., expanded the program nationally in 1945. The program was later extended to include all veterans.

The National Garden Clubs site has more information about this program.
