Vietnam Veteran and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback, Roger Staubach, founded Allies in Service to reach out to the veteran community by leveraging an all-encompassing network of support focused on employment. Allies in Service prepares job-seeking veterans and spouses in the DFW area for success by coaching them on vital employment search techniques, mentoring on military to civilian cultural differences, advocating on their behalf and connecting them with employers. By providing these essential resources, we serve our community of veterans, just as they have served us.
Currently, there are more than 350,000 veterans living in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and over 95,000 of those veterans are in Dallas County. The men and women behind these numbers will need the support of their community to ensure a successful transition. Allies in Service will continue to provide that support to Dallas area veterans and their spouses, allowing them to lead a life of success after service.
Our services are free to veterans, their spouses, and our community and employer partners.

The Ambitious VET Network (AVN) is the leading network for professional ambitious post 9/11 veterans. AVN is a community of professional post 9/11 military veterans committed to helping each other succeed in life, career, and business. Since 2017, we have been in the trenches utilizing our data-driven approach to reveal a new problem faced by veterans who have achieved stability and are wanting to take their life to the next level.
According to a Syrcuse study, 230,000 veterans are getting out of the military every year, and 43% will be leaving their first job within 12 months due to “not feeling challenged enough” or because of “underemployment.” That means over 98,000+ veterans will be without work 12-months after their service has ended. In fact, most will
go through at least 3 jobs until they “figure it out.” We call these 43%er’s who have realized that immediate transitional tools have a shelf life “Ambitious VETs!”
Our mission at The Ambitious VET Network is to create that same camaraderie and strong bond of the military community, where you can connect, grow, and succeed alongside other like-minded and high performing military veterans, creating relationships that will last a lifetime! We provide:
1. Corporate Training to Fortune 5000 companies committed to post 9/11 veterans accelerating their competencies within corporate proficiencies while improving their retention rate.
2. Award Winning Ambitious VET Podcast where we offer audio ad space to companies committed to hiring growth-minded veterans and retail companies looking to take advantage of the $19B buying power of the military community. (The On-Demand content is FREE to veterans)
3. Online Communities where ambitious vets can network, connect, and learn from one another. (The Ambitious VET Lifestyle APP coming soon!)

The Blind Guide is focused on helping people thrive with vision loss. That starts with novel assistive technology to provide more independence for people who are blind – smartcanes, haptic devices, and other accessible solutions. We also are deeply involved with employment initiatives to address the 50-70% unemployment rate for people who are blind and those with other disabilities. Our solutions benefit veterans, people with disabilities (especially blindness), and their intersectionalities. Finally, we help people who are blind or visually impaired restore their quality of life.
There are two ways to view employment of people with disabilities. One is altruistic; it’s the right thing to do. Not many public companies will ever be motivated by that driver. The other is to recognize their business value. Randy Lewis proved that employing people with disabilities was good for business at Walgreens. This is also the philosophy behind B Corporations, using business as a force for good.
People with disabilities can do almost anything someone who is typically abled can do. They may do it a different way. As long as the outcome is equivalent or better, that shouldn’t be a problem. People who are blind or visually impaired must learn workarounds for almost every task. That’s not an impediment. It makes them very creative and innovative. Their presence also improves workplace culture. Happier, more engaged employees.

VETS – Beyond the Uniform’s mission is to build upon the veteran’s military skills and the skills taught by military transition programs. Our goal is to improve the veteran’s chances for successful long term careers by providing veterans with one-on-one coaching & mentoring, and access to workshops & online training that cover over 200 skills-sets used in the civilian workforce.
The VETS – Beyond the Uniform program has been developed by military veterans with the specific goals of helping veterans make a successful journey from the military into the civilian workforce, and to also help employers that hire veterans become veteran friendly, ready and focused.
Not Your Standard Transition Program! We made a strategic decision to NOT offer the same cookie cutter services as the other transition programs offer. Our program is designed to work as a stand-alone veteran’s mentoring program, or as a support program for existing military transition programs.
Working with employers to create veteran-focused organizations
Our mission to support our veterans doesn’t end with the veteran. We want to work to support the long term success for employers that hire veterans as well. Working hand-in-hand with your team members, we will help to design & build a successful long term veteran-focused hiring & retention program specifically tailored for you.

The Invictus Project is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that is dedicated to improving the lives of veterans and first responders suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and depression. We created this organization because we were patients first and have seen the impact that these treatments have had on the lives of those who had lost all hope of recovery.
The Invictus Project takes a diagnostics first approach to treating mental health disorders. Any patient that is treated by us or our partner organization’s first receives a QSPECT brain scan, from our partner Cerescan, as well as a full blood panel to evaluate the metabolic processes of both the body and the brain. Following these diagnostic tests patients are assigned a personalized treatment protocol that is designed to address the underlying causes of their symptoms.
After treatment is completed each patient then receives a second battery of testing to evaluate the effectiveness that treatment has had on both their body and their brain.
The goal of this venture is twofold:
- To improve the long-term quality of life for patients who have been suffering from PTSD, TBI and depression
To collect the treatment data and demonstrate that these treatment protocols not only create greater long-term patient outcomes but are also more cost effective than the current standard of care.
