OUR MISSION

Our efforts are to unite, under one state legislative umbrella, the leadership and membership of Tennessee’s individual veteran organizations to work on behalf of all state veterans (and active duty members stationed in Tennessee) in advancing services and/or benefits for all members; and, to provide a forum in which to present, discuss, debate and propose procedural and/or legislative solutions to inequities and issues affecting the veteran community and its active duty counterparts within the state of Tennessee.

Currently, our membership numbers over 27,000 from the following organizations: American Veterans (AMVET), Buffalo Soldiers, Military Officers Association of America (MOAA), Women Veterans of America (WVA), Marine Corps League, Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA), The Retired Enlisted Association (TREA), Military Order of the Purple Heart, Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), Reserve Organization of Association (ROA), Farmer Veterans Coalition, and National Sojourners.
