ICYMI: Chairman Chabot Talks Veterans and Small Businesses in The Hill
WASHINGTON – Last week, House Committee on Small Business Chairman Steve Chabot (R-OH) wrote an op-ed for the Hill on veterans starting small businesses once they return from the battlefield, and the tools they need to succeed.
“When our nation’s military men and women return home after service, they not only deserve our gratitude, but often times need our help. Many who return do so with the dream of starting their own business. Not surprisingly, those who have served in the military already possess many of the same skills – such as leadership, discipline and fortitude - that make great entrepreneurs and business owners. Once they return, they just need the tools and resources to see their dream through,” said Chairman Chabot.
Chabot continued, “As Chairman of the House Committee on Small Business, I recognize how important it is to celebrate America’s veteran entrepreneurs and the contributions they have made to our economy. Each year, we do so during Veterans Small Business Week, particularly because the 2.5 million veteran-owned businesses in the U.S. hire more than 5 million employees.”
