Who do we support

Veterans. Active. Fallen.

We support our veteran community in the greater Nashville area, whether is be helping them build ramps, playing bingo, or just being there for them in a time of need. Not only do we offer our time, we also raise funds throughout the year and donate them to different veteran helping organizations. 



Waypoint Vets® is a 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization with the Mission of Uniting and Empowering Veterans through Activities and Adventure. We facilitate unique opportunities of Camaraderie and Healing for Military Veterans across America at no cost to them.

Hearty Hog Veterans BBQ Camp


Hearty Hog’s Veterans BBQ Camp is a veteran run nonprofit 501c3 organization that is supremely passionate about its mission. We take pride in providing all interested veterans with the opportunity to learn the therapeutic skill of cooking BBQ. This includes but is not limited to everything from selecting the proper cuts of meat, preparing the meat and the most gratifying part, serving it to friends and family. Oh yeah, don’t forget the sides. Sides are an integral part of the BBQ experience and will be covered at the camp.

We bring a high-quality, full-spectrum fly fishing program to an ever-expanding number of Veterans in need at over 200 locations nationwide. Project Healing Waters® programs meet regularly throughout the year with volunteers teaching the basics and advanced techniques while building long-term relationships. It is much more than a one-time fly fishing trip.

Honor Flight of Middle Tennessee


Honor Flight is a nation-wide program that takes eligible World War II, Korean War and Vietnam veterans on a free trip to see their war memorials in the nation’s capital.


World War II veterans get top priority followed by Korean War veterans. Terminally ill veterans from those wars who are well enough to fly with a doctor’s approval go to the front of the line.  Vietnam Veterans who are at least 70 percent disabled or are terminally ill will be considered on a case by case basis after World War II and Korean War veterans.


Flights include veterans from all the armed services (including the Coast Guard and Merchant Marine service in Wartime). On a recent flight one of the veterans had served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam.

To date, OSDTN has served countless veterans. In the past, our legacy has been to help chronically homeless Veterans. We still continue to do that today while also helping Veterans find meaningful employment, empower them to be successful, and give them a hand up not a hand out. We are currently making adaptive changes to our services to also reach the Post 9/11 Veteran so that we can battle the projected homelessness increase expected in 2025 to 2030. It is OSDTN’s belief that if we can engage Veterans early in their transition, find out what that Veteran wishes to accomplish, show them available Veteran benefits and how to access them, and help them find meaningful employment, we can prevent hardships that Veterans face every day.

Nearly one million of our Military Veterans are afflicted with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In fact, more soldiers have committed suicide since the Vietnam War than have died in actual battle. But many are finding hope in an unlikely place: behind the wood and strings of an acoustic guitar. The healing power of music helps soldiers cope. That’s why we provide Veterans with guitars and a forum to learn how to play. But we can’t do it without your help. Please read on to learn more about the program and how you can help those who served rediscover their joy through the power of music.

VFW Post 12206


Service to our nation is expensive.  The high cost of separation from family and friends. 


The high cost of losing one’s health.  The cost of losing one’s sight, hearing, loss of a limb.  The cost of living with PTSD.  The cost of youth lost.


And the cost of one’s life.


We as a nation, are grateful for the valiant men and women who raised their right hand, taking the oath to defend our freedom and the American way of life.


As these heroes come home from foreign fields of battle, they need the support and care of a grateful nation..

Wilson County Veteran Museum


The Wilson County Veterans Museum and Plaza is located adjacent to the county’s courthouse on East Main Street in Lebanon, Tennessee.

It honors the men and women how served their country in all the U.S. Armed Forces.

The Museum is dedicated to veterans of all conflicts and features a treasure trove of artifacts from World War I & II, Korea, Vietnam, and Desert Storm. The crown jewel of the museum is a UH-1 Helicopter better known as a “Huey.” American soldiers who fought in the Vietnam War between 1966-68 flew in the helicopter. You can see many of the bullet holes from intense combat. And from 1980-95, it was used by members of the Tennessee Army Nation Guard in a variety of missions.


The plaza features carved granite stones depicting men and women from all the U.S. Armed Forces. They include the names of Wilson Countians who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.

Bugles Across America, NFP was founded in 2000 by Tom Day, when Congress passed legislation stating that Veterans have a right to at least two uniformed military people to fold the flag and play Taps on a CD player. Bugles Across America was founded to take this a step further. In recognition of the service these Veterans have provided to their country, we felt that they each deserve a live rendition of Taps by a real bugler. To this end, we are actively seeking capable volunteers to provide this valuable service to Veterans and their families.

Wreaths Across America


While coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies each December on National Wreaths Across America Day is the most visible part of what we do, our mission to Remember, Honor, and Teach is carried out throughout the year. Our service members and veterans deserve (and sometimes need) our support all year round. At WAA, we believe it's our responsibility to invest in our living veterans so that they may thrive in our communities.


Since 2007, our $5 pay-back group sponsorship program has resulted in more than $20 million in contributions being made to organizations around the country; enabling them to provide care for our active duty service members, veterans, and their families.


Wreaths Across America believes in a “no wrong door" approach to serving our veterans. We're often asked, “I'm worried, and I don't know who to ask?" There are many resources available and, in the interest of promoting a whole community approach, we've attempted to compile a list of those resources.


Our listing is constantly growing. If you are an organization providing support to veterans in your community please contact our Director of Military and Veteran Engagement by selecting the "Add A Resource" button below.
