A well-known Nashville veterans nonprofit had a big day Thursday, announcing a major real estate deal, a capital campaign and its rebranding. Operation Stand Down Nashville Inc. purchased its building at 12th Avenue South and Edgehill Avenue for $2.5 million after five years of leasing, executive director and Army veteran Bill Burleigh said, with First Tennessee Bank providing 95 percent of the financing.
