Click here to register for a webinar on Wednesday, August 14 and representatives from the VA and Student Veterans of America will provide an overview of their national programs and discuss how they team up with campuses to offer outreach and transition services to student veterans in topics ranging from adjusting to college life to benefits and employment post-graduation.
As a part of F7 Group’s National Outreach Tour, LSR is headed to New York!
Calling all Female Veterans and Women in Military Families…
When: September 27-29, 2013
On-Site Sign in: 1:30pm
Where: Camp Smith, NY
What is the LSR?
The LSR (Lone Star Retreat) is specifically designed for female veterans, women in military service, and women serving beside the uniform. More than a personal development workshop, the LSR is a life-changing experience that incorporates specific tools to empower and encourage personal development, focus for a brighter future, and engage in your own life. An LSR weekend is where women can come to be appreciated for who they are and what they have to offer. And even more importantly, for what they are capable of becoming!
Who is this for?
All female veterans and women in military families! This includes Veterans, Active Duty, Reserves, Guard and applies to all branches, all ranks, and alll eras. Whether you were the woman IN the uniform or the woman BESIDE the uniform (wives, mothers, partners, sisters, daughters, etc.) we honor your sacrifice and commitment and welcome you to the LSR!
