Letter: Online directories make it easy to find veteran-owned businesses

Regarding "DHS drafts EAGLE replica for small businesses."

I can't help thinking the low-percentage numbers has something to do with the difficulty each agency is having trying to find service-disabled veteran-owned businesses. There are several directories online that offer procurement personnel and consumers alike a user-friendly directory of veteran-owned businesses.

We are the publishers of VeteranOwnedBusiness.com. It, along with other online directories, is helping to make it as easy as possible to find businesses owned by veterans and service-disabled veterans.
