Washington, D.C. – In honor of Veterans Day on November 11th, U.S. Sen. Jim Risch (R-Idaho), member and former chairman of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, announced the recognition of a different veteran-owned small business for each of the ten days the Senate is in legislative session. Each small business will be recognized in the Congressional Record of the U.S. Senate.
“America’s veterans have protected the very freedoms and values that give each of us and our children the ability to achieve the American dream,” said Risch. “The skills veterans learn as members of the military are invaluable and undoubtedly contribute to Idaho’s flourishing veteran business community. I am proud of the sacrifices veterans have made to protect our country and that they are choosing Idaho to call home when they complete their service in the military.”
