Lone Star Veterans Association is recruiting passionate and driven leaders to build One Veteran Community. Only the best will become LSVA Community Leaders, those that connect veterans and their families to resources, opportunities, and one another. Community Leaders will be trained and deployed into their neighborhoods and workplaces to execute fun, positive, and inclusive activities that will inspire and connect.Read more

We were excited to share our process of community building and our experience of doing so for the multi-faceted veteran community. We're proud to be working towards building One Veteran Community a foundation for the entire American community, one brick at a time.
When we were planning our Veteran Christian group in 2017 one of our Advisory Council members asked an obvious question, that I didn’t at first understand. He asked, “Would it would be appropriate for me to attend since I did not serve in the military.” I didn’t understand because at Lone Star Veterans Association our motto for events is that they’re fun, positive, and inclusive. We have focused on inclusivity recently because we were founded with a focus on Iraq and Afghanistan combat veterans but decided to expand our focus to all eras of service and to civilian supporters. It was at that point that we discussed how important it was for this group to focus on not just attracting Christian Veterans, but any Christian that wants to hear a veteran share his or her faith journey.Read more

Why I Support LGBT Veterans, and You Should Too
They served our country. Period.
If you need more convincing or would just like to learn more about our LGBT Veteran community keep reading. But first and foremost, remember that these are men and women who have served our country in our armed forces to provide the liberties and freedoms we all cherish.
Full disclosure, I do not have a long history of engagement with the LGBT Community in Houston or inside the military. Before we launched a Veteran LGBT group I had a few LGBT friends that I was connected to mostly through our engagement as business owners in Houston's small business ecosystem locally. I never had strong feelings for or against the LGBT community, and honestly didn't know much more than I had learned from watching Modern Family.Read more
