    This month marks 2 years out of the Marine Corps for me, and Lone Star Veterans has played a critical role in my life ever since I got out. It all started with the Warrior for Life Luncheon, which was one of the first events I attended when I arrived in Houston. I didn’t know anything about this city, and I didn’t have a network, but the W4L Luncheon got me started. I met some very helpful people there, including the person that ended up hiring me! Beyond that, many of my friends in Houston I met at LSVA social events. The quality and diversity of people that LSVA attracts is what keeps me involved. Many of them aren’t even veterans, just supporters, and I really appreciate that too. Most recently, I reached out to the leaders of the LSVA Real Estate group because I needed help with a rental property problem I was having. They were excited to help me, and I was overwhelmed with supportive advice. I can’t imagine where I would be now without the continual support from the LSVA Network. I will continue to be a loyal member of LSVA for a long time! Thank you guys!

    Lone Star Veterans Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides military veterans with community building activities that strengthen careers and families.

    According to the Department of Labor 80% of all jobs are placed through personal networks, but 60% of veterans cite a lack of personal and professional networks when they leave the military as a hurdle to their transition. Building the veteran community means creating professional and personal networks of our successful members to advance their careers, as well as those new to the community to find a career and a family to belong to.

    Your support of Lone Star Veterans Association allows us to connect veterans and their families to resources, opportunities and other veterans.
