Around Veterans Day, our thoughts turn to the men and women who are serving or have served in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as to all veterans and those killed in the country’s wars.Whatever the war or conflict, Americans have always believed that America’s military veterans should return home to jobs and opportunity. We can never fully repay these patriots for their sacrifice and the sacrifices of their families, but we can provide an environment in which they can strive to reach their full economic potential and fulfill their small business dreams.Part of the mission of the U.S. Small Business Administration is to provide assistance to veterans and service-disabled veterans who return home to start, resume or further grow their businesses. The SBA has taken steps to broaden the availability to veterans of financial assistance and business counseling, including the agency’s newest offering for veterans, the Patriot Express loan program.
