The new administration should absolutely include veterans programs and especially programs for veteran owned businesses into their economic recovery planning.

Right now there are many small veteran owned businesses that are having a tough time keeping afloat. Any programs that help our veterans maintain and grow their respective businesses is a good thing for our economy and, more importantly, for America.

Check out some of the current programs online that help veteran owned businesses including many that are not managed (probably a good thing) by any government agency. VeteranOwnedBusiness.com http://www.VeteranOwnedBusiness.com is a perfect example. It's a great resource for agencies, consumers other businesses and fellow veterans to search for and conduct business directly with businesses owned by United States military veterans.
