Knox County Veterans Office expands services, outreach opportunities

The Knox County Veterans Service Office is making it more convenient for veterans to get assistance by expanding its outreach to senior centers and partnering with faith-based organizations to more effectively reach veterans in Knox County.
“The Veterans Service Office is an important resource for veterans in our community,” said Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett. “Knox County wants to make it easier for veterans to get assistance because they have given so much to our country.”
Last week, Mayor Burchett and others cut the ribbon on the new Veterans Service Office located in the Knox Central Building at 1000 N Central Street. Improvements at the new location include a handicap-accessible entrance, private office spaces for added security and plenty of free parking.
The public is also invited to a veterans benefit brief at First Baptist Concord on Thursday, November 15 at 6:30 p.m. The church is located at 11704 Kingston Pike in Farragut. This partnership between First Baptist Concord and the Knox County Veterans Service staff is a creative and efficient way to better serve veterans in the community.
