In the three years since the launch of the Texas Veterans Network (TVN) powered by Combined Arms, 40,000 military-connected individuals have been connected to resources in the community.
The Texas Veterans Network was launched as a statewide initiative to streamline the connection for service members, veterans and their families to the resources in the community that help them easily transition to new duty stations, out of military service or to new stages of their lives.
This partnership launched by the Texas Workforce Commission in April 2020, in partnership with the Texas Veterans Commission, Combined Arms and United Way of Tarrant County’s Mission United is a true statewide collaboration in support of the 1.7 million veterans that live in Texas and includes the approximate 110,000 active, Guard and Reserve servicemembers and as well as their families who are stationed in the state.
TVN powered by Combined Arms was launched during the pandemic as an expansion of the Combined Arms Houston model. Now Regional Managers serve as ambassadors of the Texas Veterans Network to connect servicemembers, veterans, families, caregivers, and gold star families to community support across the state. You can find our incredible Texas Regional Managers at events in their areas:
Southeast Texas - John Smith
North Texas - Megan Heil & Gus Cabarcas
Central Texas - Sharon Ozdarski
West Texas - Martha Garza
South Texas - NOW HIRING!
Underserved Communities - Earl Lundy
The Texas Veterans Network powered by Combined Arms technology, designed specifically for the military community, is supported by a network of 250+ vetted partners offering more than 1200 resources and are committed to connecting with veterans and their families within 72 hours of request.
