A veteran of the Vietnam War, Senator Rusty Crowe (R-Johnson City) has been appointed to serve on the Governor’s Tri-Stars and Stripes Council. The council was created by executive order in July to make Tennessee the leading state for military and veterans.
“I am very appreciative and proud to have been appointed to serve on the Governor’s Tri-Stars and Stripes Council and to serve our Tennessee veterans and their families,” said Crowe. “Our veterans care more for our liberty and freedom than they did even their own lives. They served us and I look forward to proudly serving them.”
The council supports current and former service members, including veteran transition and employment, workforce development and important resources for military families.
The council consists of 13 members, including members of the Lee administration, the Tennessee General Assembly, local leaders, key veterans service organizations and a military family representative.
The council will take the following actions to position Tennessee as a leading state for service members, veterans and their families to work, live and prosper:
– Increase coordination between all state agencies related to military and veterans
– Ensure collaboration of key public and private military and veterans programs
– Promote Tennessee as the best state in the nation for military and veterans by pursuing strategic initiatives to enhance their quality of life
The council will submit a strategic plan to the Governor by January 1, 2024, and will continue to provide key updates and recommendations to benefit service members, veterans, and their families.
