Warrior for Life

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

Designed to create direct contact between veterans and local employers, Warrior For Life provides a 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.

For veterans:

  • We strongly encourage you to attend the Veteran Transition Workshop hosted by our friends at the Travis Manion Foundation the day prior. This event will give you all the tools you need to excel at Warrior for Life. *While spouses are welcome at Warrior for Life, the Veteran Transition Workshop is for veterans only.
  • 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. 
  • The dress code is business professional. Suit and tie for men, business suit for women. If you need professional attire for the event email Connie Gray at connie.gray@lonestarveterans.org
  • This is a professional lunch for you to talk with employers and network. Please do not bring guests or family members. Spouses are welcome (please RSVP).
  • If you RSVP, 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.

  • Please limit yourself to no more than three attendees per company.
