We just wrapped up Blue Star Welcome Week 2023 and all I can say is WOW!
When we started Blue Star Welcome Week in 2020, we embarked on a mission to ensure the 600,000 military families who move each year felt welcome in their new communities. What started as a small grassroots campaign to make military families feel seen and supported in their new communities has transformed into a national effort — with national impact.
