    Warrior For Life Luncheon

    W4L_-_All_Industries.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 Masraff's in the Galleria, 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.  This is 30 minutes earlier than employers in order to prepare for the event.
    • 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

    Veteran Christian Group Launch

    Faith_Based_Launch.png

    Please join Lone Star Veterans Association (LSVA) and CRU (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) for A Discussion on Faith and Service. In 2018 LSVA will continue to expand the veteran community by establishing affinity groups that serve as platforms to showcase veterans as who they really are. In this case we want to promote the impact that Christian faith has had on many of our members and how their military service has impacted their Christian faith.

    We feel that while there are many quiet professionals in our community, we need to shine a light on the amazing things that our veterans have accomplished through and due to their faith, as well as how their faith has driven their careers and lives. We believe that by bringing in great community leaders to share their stories of faith and service we will not only recognize these amazing leaders, we will inspire others to be more vocal about what they do, as well as encourage us all to lead a more purpose driven life.

    We hope that you can join us, veteran or civilian, for a great lunch that promises to inspire and educate. We also hope that if you enjoy the message and the fellowship you will want to return for future events and even volunteer to support this new program.

    Our speakers for this event will be Mea Williams Navy veteran with Grace After Fire and T'Liza Kiel with Mental Health America.
