Texas Veterans Chamber of Commerce

Please mark your calendar to join us for this important message!  Chuck will educate us on the vibrant Texas Veterans Chamber of Commerce. Their mission is to help our Vet-repreneur firms grow which includes both veteran and military spouse owned businesses.

The SBA reports there are over 160,000 veteran owned businesses in Texas. Join us as we advocate for our members, as we provide access to education and as we help open and create new markets for your products and services. Come grow with us. As we were in the military we are STRONGER TOGETHER.

We focus on 3 key pillars - 3 E's. * Entrepreneurship-expand markets, open doors * Education * Employment

We are a 21st century chamber built around an advocacy model not the old style "civic" chambers. We are different. We use 100% of our funds (above basic costs) for advertising of Veteran and Military Spouse owned businesses.  ZERO funds are going to salary or brick and motor buildings.   Our members benefit from partners and sponsors who are geared to opening new doors and new markets.  Our annual membership dues are $240.

About Col. McFarland:  

Colonel (ret) Brooks McFarland is the Senior Aerospace Science Instructor of Air Force JROTC Detachment TX-20093 at Wylie East High School, Wylie, Texas.  He and his wife Susan (formerly Susan Garrett of Garland TX) met while both were attending Texas A&M and have two children, Brady and Cara.  Brady graduated from Texas A&M in December 2018.  Cara graduated from Wylie East in 2017 (her third high school), and is studying to be a veterinary technician at Blinn College in Bryan.  The McFarlands have two friendly golden retrievers, Hazel and Dani.  After many years of moving around in the Air Force, Brooks and Susan are enjoying being back in Texas close to family. 

Colonel McFarland graduated from Joshua High School, Joshua, Texas, in 1987, and from Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, in 1991. He received his commission from Officer Training School, Lackland AFB, Texas, in 1993.  Over a 23-year military career, he commanded at the squadron and group levels and served in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, on the Joint Staff, the Air Staff, in the Office of the Under Secretary of the Air Force, the Combined Security Transition Command-Afghanistan headquarters in Kabul, Afghanistan and various operational Wings across the Air Force.  At the operational level, Col McFarland led flightline, support, and/or depot-level maintenance for B-1, B-52, C-130, E-8, F-15C, F-15E, F-16, KC-135 and RC-135 aircraft in garrison and during combat deployments.  He also advised, trained and equipped the Afghan National Army and Police Corps during combat operations on the ground in Afghanistan.  Col McFarland retired from active duty on 1 November 2016 upon completing command of the 379th Expeditionary Maintenance Group, 379th Air Expeditionary Wing, Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar, where he led efforts to provide combat sortie generation capability and aircraft/munitions maintenance support for Operations INHERENT RESOLVE and FREEDOM’S SENTINEL.  Prior to his final deployment, Col McFarland commanded a Group within the 28th Bomb Wing, whose heritage extends from the famed Doolittle Raiders.  Leading this command for two of his last 3 years in the Air Force, Col McFarland's radio call sign was "Raider 4."  Since retiring from active duty and joining the Wylie East family, he has been pleased to add a final word to the moniker...Raider 4 Life.
