“Joint Operation” veterans event to be held in Knox County

“Joint Operation,” a free event to provide veterans and their families with a one-stop shop to access local resources and services, will be held in Knoxville on Wednesday, July 19, at The Jacob Building at Chilhowee Park. The event is sponsored by the offices of U.S. Senators Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander, U.S. Congressman Jimmy Duncan, Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero, and Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett.

“Joint Operation is a one-stop shop to make it easier for veterans to get the help they need and will bring more than 70 organizations under one roof to answer questions and offer assistance,” said Corker. “We are truly inspired by how the community is coming together to help those who have served our country and also appreciate the assistance we have received from Senator Alexander, Congressman Duncan, and Mayors Rogero and Burchett.”

Joint Operation is open to all Tennessee veterans and their families and will feature more than 70 agencies and organizations with information on a number of resources, including: VA claim assistance, vocational rehabilitation, education, employment, mental health, housing, legal assistance and much more.
