What: Join us for the 5th Annual O.P. VetFest, which will serve as a day of fellowship and connection to services, volunteer opportunities, and veteran-owned businesses within the Texas Veteran Community. O.P. VetFest is the culmination of the Three Pillars of O.P. Veteran: Social Connection, Community, and Mental Health, focused on easing the emotional transition of veterans into civilian life.
The event starts 12:00pm until 5:00pm. There will be food vendors, cold beverages, plus a raffle, and tons of door prizes! Open to the public. An outdoor concert performed by veteran musical acts that will augment the daytime event. Opening ceremonies and event in dedication to 433rd Airlift Wing.

Who: O.P. Veteran and Veteran organizations and businesses from all over Texas.

- a) educate veterans as to what services are available,
- b) educate veterans as to what volunteer opportunities there are within veteran organizations in order to become engaged within the veteran community and to once again work toward a mission and objective,
- c) facilitate networking and collaboration between participating organizations in order to best serve our veterans and
