Tell the Department of Veterans' Affairs to give priority to businesses run by former service members.
It is our veterans who have made freedom a reality for all of us who enjoy it today. That's why we need to encourage the business ventures of those who have fought for our country. Veterans have sacrificed their lives to keep us safe— and when they return, it's our responsibility to make sure we're promoting their well being.
When former service members begin their own businesses, we have the obligation to give them full support and assistance. The Veterans Benefits, Health Care, and Information Technology Act requires the Department of Veterans' Affairs to put veteran businesses first when it comes to assisting with basic business operations. But the VA doesn't always adhere to the legislation.
Write to the Department of Veterans Affairs asking them to give veteran businesses priority when granting resources and assistance to small corporations.
Dear Department of Veterans' Affairs decision maker:
Please give priority to businesses run by veterans.
Veterans have sacrificed their lives in order to keep this country safe and running. When they return, it's our responsibility to make it as easy as possible for them to reassimilate and live normally. When former service members begin business ventures, we must give put them first when it comes to giving them the tools with which to set up their enterprises — whether it's good, services, or general assistance.
Please adhere to the Veterans Benefits, Health Care, and Information Technology Act and put veteran businesses first!
