Program Overview

The Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation (Family and MWR) Blue Star Card Program is a Family and MWR discount and activity program for Spouses and Families of Army Soldiers deployed, extended overseas TDY and on unaccompanied PCS assignments.

Why do we do it?
Family and MWR recognizes the sacrifices Families of Soldiers make every day. We provide the Blue Star Card Program in appreciation of their selfless service to the Army Community and to demonstrate our commitment to providing quality programs and services for a quality life.
