Research and Policy

At Blue Star Families our goal is to connect, strengthen and lead military families.  To further that goal, Blue Star Families surveys our members on an annual basis.  We work directly with partner military support organizations to capture your thoughts about military family issues, to share them with leaders and policy makers, and to learn about what is most important to you. 

The results of our 2014 survey and our other surveys can be found online.  They will give you a greater understanding of what our military families are facing. If you are a military family member yourself, you will find that your experiences are likely shared by other military families including the importance of community, service, military spouse employment, and deployment.
