Blue Star Welcome Week 2022

 

WHEN IS BLUE STAR WELCOME WEEK 2022?
It takes place from September 24th - October 2nd, 2022.


WHY IS THIS WEEK SO IMPORTANT?
According to the 2021 Military Family Lifestyle Survey, only 30% of active-duty respondents feel a sense of belonging to their local civilian community. The average military family moves three times as often as their civilian peers. The majority of these permanent change of station (PCS) moves take place during the summer in June, July, and August. More than 70% of families live off of the military installation in their local civilian communities, and they do not feel a strong sense of belonging to those communities.
