A Final Salute

Star Army family,

In a long-running community like Star Army we’ve been able to build incredible friendships and do awesome things together. We’ve seen members graduate schools, have kids, and have all sorts of life events. We’ve also seen members go through hard times battling diseases, poverty, and other challenges.

Media Gallery Now Open

These fields are actually hugely useful to the site because they can be used to make lists...
