Blue Star Welcome Wednesdays

For generations, at every duty station and after every PCS move, military families have relied on each other to learn the lay of the land and get settled into their new homes.

Twice a month, Blue Star Families of the National Capital Region continues that tradition as we host Welcome Wednesdays, designed to welcome and connect active-duty military, Veterans, and their families to the area.

Join Blue Star Families staff, local community organizations, and other military-connected neighbors for this informal bi-monthly conversation to get you connected to the DC area and each other. Bring your questions, and we'll build community, share answers, and connect with one another.

We welcome all, whether you’ve just received PCS orders to the area, moved in recently and are still unpacking, or if you’ve been here for years and have the knowledge and experience of a local to share. Come and build community with us!
