Melbourne, FL, May 13, 2012 --(PR.com
, the most comprehensive, user friendly resource of businesses owned by veterans, active duty military, reservists and service disabled veterans, today celebrated Military Spouse Appreciation Day with the launch of a new "Military Spouse Owned Business" search feature. In conjunction with this announcement, VeteranOwnedBusiness.com has added Spouse of Veteran and Spouse of Active Duty classifications to the business directory.
For more than two hundred years, our freedoms have been protected by the brave Americans who have born a uniform and sworn an oath to safeguard the principles upon which our country was founded. Our Nation’s military spouses also make tremendous sacrifices and provide great service four our country. Moving from duty station to duty station, surviving the strains of deployment, wherever and whenever their country asks, supporting our wounded warriors at home and abroad, our military spouses have become a vital part of our community.
VeteranOwnedBusiness.com was released online on Veteran’s Day 2008 and has received several million unique visitors and nearly 20 million page views. Site users include purchasing personnel from small businesses, government agencies and some of our country's largest corporations. The easy to use interface also allows the average consumer a quick way to search for products and services that are all unique in the fact that they are made by, serviced by and/or sold by United States military veterans (and now by military spouses).
“While not viewed as important as VOB/SDVOSB with government procurement personnel or prime contractors, adding these businesses to our Veteran Owned Business Community is an easy way to show support for what is arguably the 2nd most important job in the military,” said Brian K. St.Ours, VeteranOwnedBusiness.com’s Founder and President. “Our team is very excited to expand the benefits the Veteran Owned Business resource provides to these deserving businesses. If we can help even just one Spouse Owned Business keep their doors open during these very trying economic times or reduce the stress upon one soldier in uniform, it will have all been worth it!”
