Blue Star Voices


Blue Star Families Blog

So why do we blog?  We blog to tell our story but more importantly, we blog to tell your story. Our members, volunteers, friends in the military community, and partners do extraordinary things every single day and we are here to tell about it.  Check back often as we also share information about upcoming events, job opportunities and important updates to everything that impacts your life as a military family. 

We love guest bloggers so if you have something you want to share, email
