Military and Veteran Roll Call Meet Up
Saturday, March 12
9:30AM - 10:30AM
110 E 2nd St
We want to give Veterans who have served from all over the world a proper Texas Welcome.
We will provide an open forum to discuss issues that military and Veterans face today including transitioning process, education, employment, etc.
We also want to hear success stories on how the military has helped Veterans advance in their career, education, etc.
As of 2014, there were 22.8 million Veterans in the U.S. and SXSW is a great platform to bring service members and Veterans from around the world together to discuss their experiences.
