Military Family Life
Whether you’re diving back into the workforce or looking to connect with other military families, we’ve got you covered.
"As a military family, we've moved every three years, and that can be very isolating. Coming into a community and having an instant connection is very important" - Callie Barr, BSF Member
Military life can be as exhilarating as it is frustrating. We know because we live military life every day. That’s why we provide resources, events, and opportunities for military families that we know will improve and enhance your military journey.
We know that military families are stronger and more resilient when they’re able to spend time together which is why we’ve created a suite of programs that are meant to do just that: give military families time together.
Thanks to our partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the DoD, military families can enjoy art, history, children’s and science museums, zoos and botanical gardens, and other places of culture for free from Memorial Day to Labor Day each year at one of the more than 2,000 participating Blue Star Museums.
You can get away from it all--or get lost in it all--at one of 2,000 federally managed parks and lands for free through Blue Star Parks. Just get your America the Beautiful pass any time during the year to start enjoying all that our national backyard has to offer.
Reading with your child isn’t just good for their brain (although it is!), it helps to create lasting bonds between parent and child. Through our Blue Star Books on Base events, we distribute thousands of books to military kids every year. Check for events happening in your area!
Blue Star Theatres provides free or discounted live theatre tickets in more than 130 locations around the country to military families. We’re grateful for our partnership with Theatre Communications Group for helping to make this possible. Make sure you see if there’s a participating theatre near you!
And if you’re a military spouse looking for something to help you get to the next place in your career journey, we provide a variety of programs to help meet you where you are at every stage of military life.
