Just Arrived! Veterans Week 2016 In Review

Taking a Look at Last Year's Featured Veteran-Owned Businesses

Last year I teamed up with Chris Pastrana from the NH Business Show for a Veterans Day project we called "7 Veteran Owned Businesses in 7 Days."

Our plan was to shoot a video and write an article about seven different veteran-owned businesses in New Hampshire then post one article each day of veterans week.

It didn't quite work out that way.

A series of technical setbacks combined with other commitments shortened our time line and made it impossible for us to coordinate schedules.

In the end, we each did five pieces and instead of seven businesses in seven days, we went into Veterans Week featuring ten different veteran-owned businesses.

As Chris and I started working on Veterans Week 2017, it seemed like a good time to take a look back and revisit last year's featured veteran-owned businesses, so I put together a digital magazine containing all of the videos and articles from Veterans Week 2016.

These articles represent veteran business owners from Vietnam through the Iraq War in fields as diverse as security, massage, ice cream, and IT tech. 
 We thank them for their service and their continued efforts to help us build strong communities.
