We hear a lot about helping our brave veterans, but the sad fact is that despite an improving economy, many vets have difficulty finding employment after leaving the military. The  jobless rate among vets remains higher than the civilian population. That’s why, in celebration of National Small Business Week (May 1-7), the not-for-profit Navy Federal Credit Union is hoping to spread the word that entrepreneurship – if done right –  can be a rewarding career for military veterans.   To kick off National Small Business Week, we have a special interview with Jim Salmon, the head of Business Lending at Navy Federal Credit Union. A decorated veteran himself, Salmon will also discuss why it’s good business to support veteran-owned and operated businesses and how veterans have many of the skills necessary to run a successful business.
