Constance Milstein, business owner and philanthropist, was honored as the inaugural recipient of the Blue Star Families Angel Award during a ceremony held this week at Washington D.C.’s historic Army and Navy Club. Among those who joined to congratulation Connie at the luncheon were NASA Administrator MajGen Charles Bolden, United States Marine Corps (ret.), Blue Star Families CEO and founder Kathy Roth-Douquet, local military officials and other supporters of military families from both public and private sectors.
Since its inception in 2009, Connie has played an important role in the success of Blue Star Families, bringing together individuals who helped launch programs like Books on Bases and Blue Star Museums. She currently sits on the organizations Board of Directors.
“Connie has many important and worthwhile causes she supports. And yet she has given military families her attention. She believed in us at a critical time in Blue Star Families’ institutional life. Blue Star Families has become, in four years, the largest chapter based organization serving military families, with over 40 chapters in 5 countries and programs and resources used by nearly one million people,” Roth-Douquet said.
At the luncheon, Roth-Douquet announced that henceforth, the Angel Award will be known as the Connie – a fitting way to honor Connie Milstein’s deep commitment to bettering the life of our country’s military members, veterans and their families.
