2020 Survey

The 2020 Military Family Lifestyle Survey is now open until October 16, 2020!

Blue Star Families, in collaboration with Syracuse University’s Institute for Veterans and Military Families, analyzes trends related to major shifts in military life issues and helps local and national government leaders better understand the realities that military, veteran, and National Guard/Reserve families face. Our survey results receive national attention from elected officials, military leadership, public and private organizations, and numerous publications such as the Federal News Radio, Politico, and CNN Home Front.

Be a voice for your military community now so we, along with decision makers, can continue to push for positive change for your military family.

Survey Social Media

Encourage your network to be a voice for their community!  We know the greater the response, the more powerful our collective voice is. We’ve developed a toolkit full of social media posts and graphics that you can use on your social media channels to spread the word.


Are you a member of the media or a nonprofit organization who supports military, veteran, and military family communities? And are you interested in partnering with Blue Star Families to promote the 2020 survey? Please contact [email protected].
