Our chapter consists of Gold Star Wives from World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as survivors of Active Duty and Retired disabled veterans.We are active in our community through a wide range of activities. We work closely with Survivor Outreach Services at Joint Base San Antonio – Fort Sam Houston, Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery, the Fisher House, and much more. We also pursue legislation in the state of Texas that benefits Surviving spouses and their children.
