About Us

We Are United
After The Uniform

Our Mission

To unite the community to accelerate the impact of veterans on Texas.

Combined Arms is a dynamic, ever-evolving collaborative impact organization that is using an innovative approach to technology and service delivery to disrupt the veteran transition experience. By providing comprehensive support to military members and their families as they transition to civilian life, we are accelerating veteran transition in order to deliver maximum impact on Texas.

Combined Arms streamlines the connection between veterans and their families from all branches of the military with organizations that serve them. We’ve created a new veteran service model, focusing on collective impact—reinventing what it means to serve veterans by creating pathways for them to access resources based on exactly what they’ve asked for, leaving the outdated model of “services in silos” behind. 

Combined Arms is creating a well-rounded community of Texans who are United After The Uniform.

Our Story

The idea for Combined Arms began where many ideas do—around a dinner table with friends, three Houston-based veterans, each of us with our own post-military life story and each of us with our own unique transition journey. Having served our nation as an Air Force pilot, Army medic and Naval officer, we knew too many of our brothers and sisters who returned home after serving our country only to struggle in their transition to civilian life.

Each of us knew this process, as only someone who has ever transitioned out of the military can understand, and we recognized the confusion and the flaws in the process. We saw the need for an organization that could empower veterans to carefully and strategically navigate life post military and envision a life of impact and meaning.

We have a gap to fill

For veterans returning to civilian life, there is a chasm that we must build a bridge across. A community to unite under one powerful cause. We have a new kind of life to define—one that straddles the before and the after.

The service and the veteran.

The civilian and the veteran.
