Update for Repairs for Heroes

This great veteran is Virgil Cooley and his wife Deanna. Virgil is going through several medical issues and cannot walk. His wife Deanna is trying to take care of him. Their bathroom floor is falling in, and the shower is very tiny and impossible for Deanna to take care of Virgil in it.  Also, they need their bedroom door to be widen for wheelchair access.

Please donate here to help Mr. & Mrs Cooley here. 

   We hope to have this project completed before Christmas but we can’t do it without your financial support.

These Service Members served our country, now they need our help. Please help.

Veteran Centric Veterans Day Huge Success in Blount County

Over 320 attended the 49th Blount County TN Veterans Day event  on Saturday November 11, 2017.   But every thing seemed different.  For decades the event was held at the Maryville Courthouse but this year changed: the event was moved to Rio Revolution Church and a new venue; making the event veteran centric.

Veterans Day began with Vet to Vet Tennessee’s President Freddie J. Owens appearing on WBIR.  Freddie’s interview.

With a new vision, Blount County Mayor Ed Mitchell, Vet to Vet Tennessee (VTVT) and United Veterans of Blount County Veterans prepared this event to honor Vietnam Veterans and their families who served from November 1955 to May 1975.  Mayor Mitchell created a Blounty County Proclamation for this event.  VTVT President and Ia Drang survivor Freddie J. Owens was the special guest speaker.
