Whether two years or over fifteen years once a Veteran departs from the military they are seeking resources.  The resources that they are seeking cover an array of subjects from employment, support and mental illness to business ownership.  Who, When, Where, Why and How?

There are several resources available to help Veterans in numerous ways. Let’s explore a few of them.  National Veteran-Owned Business Association (NAVOBA) is a great for business owners.

If you have the compassion for business ownership or already in business see what they have to offer.  NAVOBA is available to help Veterans that has a desire in opening a franchise business, selling to corporations or have an interest in being a government supplier.  Additionally, NAVOBA created a national publication, Vetrepreneur committed to furthering their efforts in helping Veterans.

Both NAVOBA and Vetrepreneur acts as a catalyst for the voice of Veterans.  They speak to legislation on Veteran initiatives and on matters that concern and benefit Veterans.  American Homecomings (subsidiary of Digital First Media) another resource that has been tasked with helping Veterans get the latest news update, offering resources and support services and being a platform for Veterans to tell their stories upon their deployment from the military.

Hire Heroes USA and National Veterans Legal Services Program (NVLSP) are other resources dedicated in helping Veterans whether through employment or legal concerns.  While several of these resources have a legitimate interest in helping Veterans, there are others that are not.  It is in the interest of the Veteran to either get referrals or check out any resources of interests carefully.

Thank you for your service and sacrifice.  Welcome back.
