BlueStar HonorCare CEO appointed to nonprofit organization serving veterans in business and entrepreneurship
Capitol Post is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that inspires the Washington, D.C. region’s military veterans and their spouses to find their path in business by offering great programming, a supportive network, and co-working space. Whether it’s entrepreneurship, joining a startup/small business, or finding the best career, Capitol Post helps veterans find their stride in business after serving in the military.
Capitol Post partners with many veteran organizations, business programs and employment services to guide veterans through the business work. The organization focuses on several areas, including providing personalized professional guidance; connecting veterans to top business resources, leaders and mentors; hosting events, workshops and classes; facilitating business connections and networking opportunities, and access to modern co-working, conference, and space.
“Capitol Post is thrilled to welcome BlueStar HonorCare’s Rob Wray to our Board of Directors,” said Emily McMahan, Capitol Post’s Executive Director. “Rob embodies the spirit of the veteran business community with his experiences in both the U.S. Navy and the startup community. He brings expertise, energy and talent to the table, and we are fortunate to have him as we continue build Capitol Post.”
Capitol Post is intentionally named to designate its location and resources as Washington, D.C.’s central station for veterans to discover and define their post-service career. The organization is also the proud home to Bunker Labs DC, a chapter of the national 501 (c) (3) organization located in fifteen cities that empowers military veterans as leaders in entrepreneurship and innovation. Capitol Post’s goal is to be DC’s best business and personal incubator for military veterans and their spouses.
“I am humbled and honored to join Capitol Post’s Board of Directors,” said Rear Admiral Robert O. Wray Jr. (ret.). “I look forward to working with my Board colleagues and the entire team at Capitol Post to continue to serve our nation’s veterans by ensuring that our veteran entrepreneurs and business leaders have the resources, tools, knowledge and education to compete in a global marketplace.”

The company is veteran-owned and is a certified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB). BlueStar is committed to hiring veterans, including disabled and wounded soldiers, and it sets aside a percentage of revenues that it donates to veteran-related causes.
