The next generation Very Large Array will have excellent sensitivity for detecting the thermal emission from massive stars and from red giants. This will allow direct imaging of the winds for a large number of hot massive stars. It will also allow using the radio emission for the massive stars as a way to detect stars to allow high resolution measurements can be made, even with large extinction.

A few examples of the utility of the high resolution measurements are given: dynamics of globular clusters with red giants, detection of intermediate mass stripped stars in binaries, and measurement of masses of stars in massive binaries.
