Lee Greenwood

An icon on the country music industry, Lee Greenwood has had seven #1 songs and 25 charted singles.  Greenwood has won numerous industry awards, including Male Vocalist of the Year for the Academy of Country Music and CMA Song of the Year in 1985 for “God Bless the USA” which has been voted most recognizable patriotic song in America.

Across this great nation that we once defended, the TVBA is the only group of Veteran Owned Businesses and Champion Partners that embraces our mission of business development, growing the entrepreneurial spirit, government advocacy, education and training, and career support to the veteran job seeker.

We honor the same culture of diversity that we embraced while in uniform. We come from all branches of the military, and we are on the same team once again. As business owners, our members offer a broad range of products and services. We have solar panel installers, landscapers, wellness experts, cheese makers, training professionals, and a wide array of federal government contractors.

Veterans in all walks of life have earned distinction by service to our country. The TVBA is dedicated to the proposition that those who have borne the battle should be better recognized in the chambers of commerce.

If you’re a veteran, or a business interested in supporting our association, please contact us today!
