Veterans in the United States deserve extensive support and assistance for their outstanding duty in keeping the country safe. This fact led the federal government to certify Veteran-Owned Small Businesses and help them reach success.
VOSB/SDVOSB Certifications were put in place to assist U.S. Veterans who own a business. The certifications give firms access to millions of dollars of government spending.
