NASHVILLE – Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam today joined Tennessee Department of Veterans Services Commissioner Many-Bears Grinder and Major General Terry “Max” Haston from the Tennessee Military Department to recognize six veteran state employees and more than 474,000 Tennessee veterans of all ages and eras. The Governor’s Veterans Day event was held at the Tennessee Tower Plaza in downtown Nashville.
“When we are talking to employers about Tennessee’s skilled workforce, veterans play a huge role in making the Volunteer State competitive,” Haslam said. “Veterans represent more than 6 percent of the State of Tennessee’s executive branch and I am proud to work along so many people who have bravely served our country.”
