|Terry Praises Effort to Expand Small Business Loans to Military Communities|
WASHINGTON - Congressman Lee Terry today applauded the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) for launching the Patriot Express loan initiative with the goal of increasing assistance to veterans, service-disabled veterans and members of the military community who want to start or expand their small businesses.
"Encouraging small businesses run by members of the military community - veterans, active duty, members of the National Guard and Reserves - is an important way to support American military families as they plan for their futures," Terry said. "In transitioning to civilian life, these fine Americans possess unique skills and tools making them great entrepreneurs, in addition to patriots."
The SBA Nebraska District Office in Omaha has planned a local press conference in conjunction with the national announcement in Washington, DC, by SBA Administrator Steven Preston:
Where: Disabled American Veterans, 4515 F Street, Omaha
