What Our Members Are Saying
"It was so beautiful and educational... I think I’m an outdoorsy person now. I guess this means I need a bike, fishing poles, etc. Military friends, groups like Blue Star Families exist to help us. They don’t survive without our support. So find your local Chapter and go do some fun stuff."
Active-Duty Military Spouse
"On behalf of my family, we are very thankful for today. We had so much fun at Dave & Buster’s, especially the kids. May God bless you and Blue Star Families."
Frances, Navy Spouse
"Moving to a new area amidst an international pandemic, having this opportunity to not only see the Naval Academy football team play, but also meeting and interacting with other military families has helped make this transition a little easier for our entire family."
