What is Nashville Honors Heroes?
Nashville Honors Heroes (“NHH”) is a non-profit organization committed to making Nashville the most veteran-friendly city in the United States. Nashville Honors Heroes challenges the Nashville community to work collaboratively in support of local members of the armed forces, veterans, and their families. Additionally, Nashville Honors Heroes is developing targeted programs to close service gaps and create connections between the communities surrounding Ft. Campbell, KY and Nashville, TN. Nashville Honors Heroes is also organizing the first annual Nashville Military and Veteran Services Convention.
Most Nashvillians are fiercely patriotic and appreciative of veterans and active-duty members of the armed forces. However, Nashville has a huge problem with redundancy, waste, fraud, and abuse, because there are so many different groups, non-profit organizations, companies, and government entities all trying to support veterans, active-duty members of the armed forces, and their families; and not everyone who claims to be trying to support veterans is actually legit.1 Many service-members avoid wading into this disorganized sea of supporters.
Nashville Honors Heroes brings synchronization and leadership to the Nashville community, serving as a magnet for local community leaders, veterans, active-duty members of the armed forces, and their families who want to work together to create mutually beneficial partnerships. Supporting Nashville Honors Heroes helps them bring order to chaos, improve long-term policymaking that impacts veterans, and promote a military-friendly civilian community in Nashville.

On September 11, 2015, our President and Chief Legal Counsel, Noel Bagwell, was pleased to be one the first guest speakers to speak to the Nashville Veterans Entrepreneur Society (NVES), a key NHH program supporting veteran entrepreneurs. Since then, Mr. Bagwell has continued to attend NVES meetings, where he personally reaches out to veteran entrepreneurs to make available to them the essential business legal services every entrepreneur needs.
ExecutiveLP™ has also sponsored the Nashville Honors Heroes Gatsby Gala Casino Night event at Sinema Nashville. This 1920s-themed “casino night” fundraiser is being organized in support of the first annual Nashville Honors Heroes Convention and Veteran Mentorship Program.

How can you support Nashville Honors Heroes?
You can always reach out to Nashville Honors Heroes via the Contact page on their website. Attending events, like the Gatsby Gala and annual convention are also important, because NHH uses these events to raise funds for its other non-profit work. Perhaps the most important way to get involved, though, is by participating in NHH’s ongoing programs, like NVES.
You can connect with NHH and NVES through Facebook and Twitter. Of course, if you are a veteran or active-duty service member or their family member and an entrepreneur, you’re always welcome at NVES meetings and events. That’s a great way to get plugged-in to the community and meet the people behind this great organization.
