Past Events



Welcome to the East Tennessee Veterans Honor Guard(ETNVHG) website. ETNVHG is a Tax Exempt 501(c)(19)  organization that has been providing Military Honors for honorably discharged veterans funerals since 1994. While ETNVHG performs most of the services at the Veterans Cemetery on John Sevier Hwy, honors can be provided at the cemetery of choice in the greater Knox County area. If the request is in another area, we can recommend another honor guard to assist with the service.
