    The Lone Star Veterans Association enhances the post 9/11 veteran community in Houston, Texas by connecting veterans to resources, opportunities, and other veterans. While we focus our programming and outreach on post-9/11 veterans and their families we want everyone to feel welcome attending our events. We strive to provide fun, approachable and inclusive event programming for serving our veterans. 

    We have two ways to join LSVA, either as a member or a supporter. Membership is restricted according to our by-laws as being a post-9/11 veteran that has been honorably discharged. If you do not have an honorable discharge you can petition for an exception for membership by emailing membership@lonestarveterans.org in order to begin that exception process. While we focus our programming and outreach on the post-9/11 veteran community we welcome veterans from every era or service to participate in our organization.

    Operation Lone Star Santa

    We are very excited that Operation Lone Star Santa is able to provide toys to the children of veteran families in the Greater Houston area during the holiday season.
