Washington, D.C., Blue Star Families Style

White House Blue Star Family Christmas Tree 2013

I was humbled and honored to be selected for this incredible whirlwind tour in Washington! The opportunity to meet other Blue Star Families Volunteers and Staff was a wonderful experience just talking and discovering our commonalities and our unique skill sets we bring to the Blue Star Families floor.

The White House tour offered many riches throughout with the Gold Star Family tree, Operation Honor Card station complete with USPS Blue Mailbox, Blue Star Family Tree, and ending at the White House Foyer and entrance.

A Mount Vernon Candlelight tour was cold and rainy, albeit it beautiful and appropriate for the 214th Anniversary date of the passing of George 
Washington; it lent to four of us huddling together under one umbrella, and very eager for the night's dinner to enjoy fellowship and warmth.

The opportunity to volunteer at the Holiday Luncheon for our Wounded Warriors at Walter Reed was a deeply rewarding experience! The strength and spirit of the service members, spouses, parents, and children was a reminder of 
how proud and resilient our Military Family Members are. I was privileged to attend this event and look forward to attending again.

I look forward to continuing my service to Our Military Families and Service Members!
