The Tennessee Department of Veterans Affairs mission is to serve Veterans and their family members with dignity and compassion as an entrusted advocate. We try to serve as an effective and efficient conduit for Veterans of all eras to connect with resources and services that improve their quality of life, access to education, business resources and high quality jobs. We believe Veterans are special people who deserve our efficient, productive and compassionate advocacy in return for their service to our Nation. Veterans have earned our respect and are our reason for being, our common purpose, and all our efforts are directed toward meeting their needs.
