In April each year, we like to stop and pay our respect to the Military child. These children make a sacrifice unlike many children in their age. Their mother’s and/or father’s have elected to serve in the United State military, and the child travels from duty station to duty station with their parent. These young men and women deserve the recognition for what they endure as well. There are times where Mom and/or Dad are away from them for extended periods of time with no real clue on when they are coming home.
Here at BlueStar HonorCare, we are an company founded “by Vets for Vets.” Two-star Admiral, Robert Wray, Jr. comes from a family of veterans. Nearly 20 members of his family have worn the uniform of the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps.
According to Wray, “I remember 1967-68– the year my Dad was flying in Vietnam, and
my uncle Pat was a Chaplain with the Marines over there– probably the toughest year of my life.”
BlueStar HonorCare also heard from David Coakley, a son of an Army soldier. According to Coakley,
“I remember my mom and dad’s smiles and joy the day he walked in the door after returning home from Vietnam.
With our 3rd son currently serving in the Middle East, I understand those powerful emotions much better than I did as a child.”
Military children come from all walks of life and from all over the United States. These children grow up with a deep seeded appreciation for what it means to serve this country and what it means to be a part of something that is so much greater than ourselves. With these same values in mind, here at BlueStar, we want to be there for our military family, as well as, their children.
Keeping families Safe, Healthy, and Connected is something we live by. In the military, we used to say “I got your six.” In this case, we refer to your “six” as your back. BlueStar wants to be the support needed to give you and your loved ones the support in dealing with an aging Mom, Dad, or loved on.
