November 11 is Veterans Day, a holiday on which our nation pays tribute to those who have served in our armed forces. Tennessee is home to more than 500,000 veterans, and Secretary of State Tre Hargett recognizes the contribution they have made and are making to our communities.
In honor of Tennessee veterans, the Tennessee Business Spotlight theme for the month of November is: Veteran-Owned Businesses. There are hundreds and hundreds of businesses in Tennessee that are owned by veterans - a handful of which are being spotlighted this month.
Tennessee Business Spotlight is a feature on the Secretary of State’s web site that showcases some of the state’s businesses that create jobs, produce quality products and give back to their local communities. People visiting the Tennessee Business Spotlight web page can learn about the selected companies’ goods and services, operations, employment figures, photos and links to web and social media sites that provide more information.
The companies showcased in November are:
“I thank these men and women who have proudly served our nation and our state in the military and are now contributing to our economy through their businesses,” Secretary Hargett said. “They made great contributions to our armed services and continue to make great contributions in our communities.”
