A Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and a very Happy, Healthy New Year to all of you. Thank you for following this column, I hope you have gained a little insight into our nation’s veterans and issues pertaining to them and their families.
This month, I will touch on veteran-owned businesses as well as hiring veterans. According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s survey of small business owners, as of April 2017, there were more than 2.5 million businesses that are majority owned by a veteran. The revenues from these veteran-owned businesses generated $1 trillion and payroll for employees was $195 billion.
