Veterans of the United States Military have made huge sacrifices for the preservation of our freedoms and way of life. There are more than 866,000 veterans living in Ohio, many of whom own businesses and we believe that it is important to recognize their contributions. Veterans work in and represent nearly every portion of Ohio’s economy, and use military leadership skills in their business practices. As Veterans Day nears, it is important to remember the numerous past and present servicemen in our communities. For these reasons, we have dedicated the month of November to highlight Veteran-owned businesses.
