2011 was marked by extraordinary growth for Blue Star Families, underscoring for us the strong demand among both military families and the larger civilian society for what we offer. Blue Star Families has created a platform through which military family members and their supporters can work directly to address the challenges that face our community during this period of long war, and into the transition home. Over a half a million military family members and millions of civilians participated in our programing this year.
2010 marked the first full year of Blue Star Families’ non-profit operation. It followed a year of incredible dedication by a handful of people who worked with extraordinary energy and dedication, without pay, to create this platform - Blue Star Families - where military family members and their supporters could work directly to address the challenges that face our community during this period of long war.
