In the U.S., the last Monday in May is Memorial Day, a federal holiday honoring the men and women who died while serving in the country’s armed forces. During this Memorial Day weekend, we encourage you to spend some time remembering the sacrifice these men and women made.


Memorial Day is sometimes confused with Veterans Day, that honors all those who have served in the armed forces. It is appropriate that we honor our veterans these two holidays — and throughout the year.

As a small business, one of the best ways to display that honor is to hire veterans who, as we’ve noted, make great employees.

In the SmallBusiness.com Guide to Resources for Military Veterans, you will find links to resources that will help you find and recruit veterans. Also, in the guide, veterans can find links to resources for veterans who want to start a business.

During this Memorial Day weekend, we honor all active-duty members of our armed forces, our military veterans, and especially those who paid the ultimate price in service to their country.
