Mission Statement

The Lone Star Veterans Association is dedicated to creating a community where service members coming out of the military can make the successful transition to a civilian life. Our mission is to prevent veteran unemployment, depression, isolation, homelessness, substance abuse, and worst of all, suicide. We are a dedicated team of veterans that have served in combat and are now serving in Texas, to improve the lives of veterans and their families. We do this through camaraderie, peer mentoring, career assistance, community service, transition assistance, athletic engagement, family events, veteran advocacy, and mental health awareness and resources.

We have served around the world and now we are serving here in Texas to make sure that our brothers and sisters are not left behind.
