On this Veteran's/Armistice/Remembrance Day we extend our gratitude to soldiers and honor them for their service to country. Please, let's continue our show of gratitude and support via tangible means throughout the year. There are veterans among us seeking employment... let's put them to work! There are veterans among us setting out as entrepreneurs... let's patronize their businesses!
These very fine men and women are a special breed altogether; they have a kind of determination and focus that make them superior employees and business owners. I invite... no, I task you to learn about and support the veteran operated businesses in your local community. And if you are a business owner/manager, do yourself and our community at large a great service by employing our proud veterans. Contact your local Veteran's Administration for more details. Often times it is just a single opportunity that makes all the difference. Be the difference!
Please list your local veteran businesses in the comments and be sure to share.
