In 2019, National Football League veteran Drayton Florence and nationally syndicated columnist and Iraq War veteran Jeff Shuford founded National Invest In Veterans Week, intending to empower the public to invest in the veteran population through veteran-owned business sustainment, educational development, and mental health empowerment.
Along with the launching of numerous veteran-focused innovations, the award-winning veteran-owned technology company Tech From Vets launched National Invest In Veterans Week. “National Invest In Veterans Week puts veteran business owners in the driver’s seat of their enterprises,” stated Lieutenant Colonel Rickey L. Pope, Army, USA, Retired.
Whether celebrating the week or empowering veterans to start and grow their business enterprises, there are many ways to observe and celebrate National Invest In Veterans Week.
The staff at National Invest In Veterans Week would like to formally thank the South Carolina Senate and the South Carolina Senate Family and Veterans Services Committee for passing H 3825 commemorating National Invest In Veterans Week.
The Registrar at National Day Calendar® proclaimed the celebration in July of 2019 to be observed March 1-7, annually.
