Veterans Products First
 

BY ALAN GIBSON, CHAIR

If you have not done so, please visit www.vva.org and check out the ETaBO page. Every week Carol Engle has been adding new information. She has done a great job of getting us up and running, and the committee appreciates her work beyond words. All of the guides are on the site and may be printed out. One new item is the list of veteran-owned businesses that answered our Survey of Business Owners. We hope that you will visit this site from time to time and see what our brother and sister veteran-owned businesses are doing. Remember to buy veterans products first.

If you are a business owner, please complete the survey and get it to us so we can list you on the web site and get you information to help market your product. You cannot beat the price. It’s free. You already have paid the price by serving your country, so take advantage of it.

The committee also is looking for VVA members interested in helping keep up with legislation or proposing legislation that will help all veterans with employment, training, and vocational rehabilitation. If you would like to help, please contact the committee, or let your State Council president know that you would like a recommendation to be added to the committee. Attendance at meetings would be at your or your State Council’s expense. However, attendance is not mandatory. You can work from home and keep us informed about what you are doing, or you can make recommendations.

Remember: You do not have to be a member of the committee to make recommendations or suggestions on any of our issues. We work for you—not the other way around.
