Founded in 1964 as Air Force Village (AFV), the original focus was to care for U.S. Air Force officers’ widowed spouses. The mission soon expanded to a more traditional senior living community focus that included all ranks and all branches of the military. Over time the mission continued to expand and in 2014 the name was changed to Blue Skies of Texas to coincide with opening the campus to those with or without a military affiliation. Today, residents include people from all walks of life but maintains a unique military heritage.
