On Memorial Day, in particular, this is a powerful, poignant message. The sacrifice of these two fine, young Marines…and those like them since 1775 to the present…is precisely why America has survived and prospered as it has. It is they who’ve kept “the wolf away” from America’s doorstep to the present time. Freedom has never been free and never will be. God bless these fine American warriors and all those like them.

Veteran Business Project Is Promoting A State Guaranteed Military Veteran Small Business Loan Program Across America

Lynn Lowder, Co-CEO of the Veteran Business Project, recently traveled to Missouri to meet with key personnel regarding the promotion of a Missouri veterans' state-guaranteed small business loan program.  Other states to be approached near-term are Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, North Carolina, Nevada, Colorado and California.  The Veteran Business Project's mission is to advance this program across America. Small business has always been the back-bone of the American economy and our country needs a small-business resurgence.  Our military veterans richly deserve the opportunity to be a part of that effort and the Veteran Business Project is working to make their small business goals a reality.
