    Veteran Spouses Social

    Affinity_Group_-_Evergreen.png

    We are beginning 2017 with a new Affinity Group within LSVA, an At Home Spouse group. LSVA works because all of our members have a shared military experience that makes it easier to talk openly about the good and bad things in our lives. Our military and veteran spouses need the same opportunity to gather and discuss what is going on in their lives with others who are living those experiences now, or have in the past. These are kid friendly events that will allow parents to get out of the house, let the kids burn off some energy with other kids, and be able to relax with other parents.

    We will also have a Facebook group for the members to join and continue the conversation outside of the event. In order to join that private group you will need to attend the event or contact rebecca.escobedo@lonestarveterans.org.

    Woodlands Warrior for Life Luncheon

    W4L_-_Healthcare_Careers.png

     

    The transition from military to civilian life can be difficult. The biggest obstacle to hurdle is finding that great career launch pad. Being a military veteran, you already stand out in the crowd as a resource that is sought by those companies who value excellence from their personnel. At the Warrior For Life Luncheon, you get to meet those companies, one on one.

    Designed to create direct contact between veterans and local employers, Warrior For Life provides the forum for veterans to get hired. Hosted once a month at Churrasco's in The Woodlands, veterans have a chance to market themselves in a professional, yet personal environment. The Lone Star Veterans Association has coordinated with local employers to emphasize a veteran hiring initiative and to introduce Warrior For Life as a resource for potential employees.

    For veterans:

    • Promptly arrive at 11:00 a.m.  
    • There is plenty of free parking. 
    • You need to have a proper and up-to-date resume/CV. 
    • You need to dress professionally. Suit and tie for men, business suit for women. If you need professional attire for the event email Connie Gray at connie@lonestarveterans.org
    • This is a professional lunch for you to talk with employers and network. It is not an event that involves family members or guests.
    • If you register for the luncheon you need to attend.  If you cannot make the luncheon, it is important that you email communications@lonestarveterans.org  or call (281)744-7972 by 10:00 AM the day prior to the luncheon.  This allows space for those veterans on the wait list.

    LGBT Veterans Social

    Lone Star Veterans Association's mission is to build the community of post-9/11 veterans through fun, positive, and inclusive events. Due to responses from member surveys over the past two years and the lack of current events targeting the LGBT community we are re-launching our LGBT Veterans social in 2017. This will be a monthly event for our veterans that have proudly served. 

     

    We have also created a closed Facebook group in order to allow this Affinity Group to effectively communicate between events.

    Come out for some great camaraderie, great cars, and an unforgettable experience. This event serves as a bridge between the veteran and civilian community through our mutual love of fast cars. For veterans this is an opportunity for a once in a lifetime experience while meeting some very successful individuals that greatly support veterans.
     
    For the drivers of the Corvette Owners Club of Houston and sponsors this is a tremendous opportunity to show your support for our veteran community and have the time to get to know veterans in a one-on-one context. The drivers and the veterans will pair off one-on-one to drive from Constellation Field to the MSR Houston. Along the way stories will be shared and lives can be changed. After the racing we'll be eating lunch at Joe's Barbeque in Alvin.
