Veterans Center of East TN
Veterans Center of East TN was founded by Mr. Michael Paul, an OEF/OIF Army Veteran. After spending a number of years acting out on suicidal thoughts, Michael checked himself into the VA domicilary for help in Feb. 2020. Since then Michael has not used any mind or mood altering substances, obtained many certifications and is dedicated to helping the isolated Veteran, like himself.
Mission: Raise awareness to the high rate of Veteran Suicide and offer preventative measures to help veterans become healthy, productive, successful members of society through community building and positive reengagement with their families.
The Organization gives to the ones who gave.
