What is ETWVN?

East TN Women Veterans Network is a social and support group hosted by East TN Foundation for Women Veterans and consists of women veterans residing within a 50 mile area of Knoxville Tennessee. The group welcomes women veterans of all ages and service experiences. We gather together regularly throughout our service area for fun events, meals, and camaraderie with the intent of keeping our sisters engaged and supported. We do not provide financial assistance.

Our service area includes the following East TN Counties: Anderson, Blount, Campbell, Claiborne, Cocke, Grainger, Hamblin, Jefferson, Knox, Loudon, Monroe, Morgan, Roane, Sevier, and Union. Other areas may be assisted, or new Counties added to this list.

If you are a woman who served in the US military… Active Duty, Reserve or Guard, during any time frame and whether not you ever left US shores, ETWVN wants to meet you! No boring meetings…no politics…no rank…just camaraderie and fun!  We invite you to join ETWVN which currently has a membership of over 350 women veterans of all ages and services!
