The mission of Grace After Fire is to provide the means for women Veterans to gain self-knowledge and self-renewal.

We serve to protect the veteran, connect the resource, and renew the woman.

Business Networking Events and Groups in San Antonio
San Antonio Networking Calendar builds on the person to person contact from networking opportunities. When you hear a room full of people give their 15 seconds, sometimes it's hard to visit with them and get contact info. The Calendar is a unique resource in our area. It's maintained by Terry Negley, with help from you and many others providing the latest event info.

This group serves, honors, and empowers Women Veterans from all eras and branches of service. We network, socialize, volunteer, and give back to the Veteran community while bringing public awareness to the specific issues of Women Veterans.

We meet at least once a month for coffee, and try to have new, interesting, and fun events planned every other month. Come out to have fun and meet other women who are like minded and share your experiences. We look forward to meeting fellow Women Veterans.

Our network mission is to connect Women Veterans throughout the state of Texas for the purposes of professional development, professional mentoring, and professional networking.


The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s largest wartime veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow servicemembers and veterans.

The Mission Continues empowers veterans who are adjusting to life at home to find purpose through community impact. We redeploy veterans on new missions in their communities, so that their actions will inspire future generations to serve.
Our operations in cities across the country deploy veteran volunteers alongside non-profit partners and community leaders to solve some of the most challenging issues facing our communities: improving community education resources, eliminating food deserts, mentoring at-risk youth and more.
Through this unique model, veterans build new skills and networks that help them successfully reintegrate to life after the military while making long-term, sustainable transformations in communities and inspiring future generations to serve.

The Military Veteran Peer Network connects veterans and their families to local state and national resources through an active group of veteran peers.
