Combined Arms LGBTQ+ Veterans & Allies Military Ball

The Combined Arms Institute will host the LGBTQ+ Veterans & Allies Military Ball at the Lone Star Flight Museum in Houston, Texas on Friday, April 30, 6-10pm.

This is a unique opportunity for LGBTQ+ veterans, all veterans, and allies to gather, celebrate, and be recognized.  Veterans are at the center of Combined Arms ongoing outreach and support work which is inclusive of all U.S. military veterans, and we are proud to host this event.

This event will honor the history of LGBTQ+ veterans and celebrate the 10th anniversary of the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell which required service members to be silent about their authentic lives. 

The Combined Arms community, including allies, advocates, and family members are welcome to join in this celebration where LGBTQ+ veterans are recognized for their service.
