In the U.S., Saturday, November 11, 2017 is Veterans Day, a national holiday honoring those who have served in nation’s armed services. When Veterans Day falls on a Saturday, the official national holiday is on Friday. So this year, Friday, Nov. 10, is the day the Post Office and many banks and other businesses may be closed. 

At, we use Veteran’s Day as an opportunity to remind our users that we have many links to resources developed for veterans who own small businesses, or who want to start one.

We also link to resources for employers who want to hire veterans, recognizing the not only their service but the skills, discipline, and other attributes that vets developed while serving.
