Veteran Family

Are you a Veteran or transitioning out of active duty? Let us help you navigate the challenges ahead.

Veteran families are an integral part of our society, embodying resilience, sacrifice, and unwavering dedication. These families face unique challenges and made tremendous sacrifices in service to our country. As they transition back into civilian life, it is crucial to provide them with the support and resources they need to thrive. At Blue Star Families, we are committed to ensuring that Veteran families receive the assistance they deserve. Together, we can honor their service and create a community where they feel valued, supported, and empowered to pursue their dreams.

Here are two Veteran families who are finding belonging in their communities after serving their country with distinction and valor:


Air Force CMSgt (Ret.) Larry and his wife, TSgt (Ret.) Rhonda, attend local sporting events to feel a better sense of belonging in their community.

Here’s Michael, who served 30+ years in the Air National Guard, in Vermont enjoying a Notre Dame football game in 2021 with his three sons. One of his sons followed in his father's footsteps in service to his country, and is now in his 21st year of active duty with the U.S. Coast Guard.
