• Six-year tenure with the Pennsylvania Army National Guard as an Infantryman.

• A dedicated volunteer at his local VA Hospital, aiding fellow veterans in need.

What is an SDVOSB?

A Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) is a small business which is at least 51% owned by at least one individual who has served in the active US military, naval, or air service; incurred or aggravated a disability in the line of duty while actively serving; and was discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable.

SDVOSB companies have been afforded certain benefits when entering the US federal procurement marketplace, by virtue of Congressional legislation, including establishment of an overall goal of allocating not less than 3% of the entire federal budget for acquiring goods and services from SDVOSB companies, and providing for the reserving of particular individual federal procurements as set-aside opportunities for SDVOSB participation. In addition, many state and local governments have instituted preferences for granting SDVOSB companies separate favored status. Private commercial and industrial companies often will, as a matter of policy, include SDVOSB concerns in their supplier diversity mix.
