COVID-19 6-Months In Review

Join Blue Star Families and the Association of Defense Communities for a virtual event where we will review lessons learned through six months of research.

What have we learned? CMSI Pain Points Poll research revealed that when families had confidence in their leadership to follow safety protocols, families were more resilient and service members could focus on mission readiness.

During the event, we will share the real-life story of Karly and her family in Norfolk VA. Learn how her family was impacted by COVID-19, how the DOD responded to support Karly’s family, and the lessons learned from their experience.

You will also have the opportunity to hear from leaders in the military and defense community.

The Honorable
Matthew P. Donovan

Under Secretary of Defense
for Personnel and Readiness

Chief People Officer Booz Allen Hamilton
