Sunday, November 11, marks Veterans Day 2018, a celebration honoring America’s veterans for their service to the U.S. Armed Forces. Not only have Dallas veterans demonstrated patriotism and willingness to sacrifice for the common good, but veteran business owners are an integral component of the fabric of Dallas’ business market. It is Dallas Capital Bank’s honor and privilege to support our local Dallas veterans.
“At Dallas Capital, we are committed to the continued growth and success of Dallas business-owners, and that group includes veterans,” commented Dallas Capital Bank President & CEO Doug Hutt. “From their military service, veterans have gained valuable skills and experience in unconventional ways. They bring qualities of leadership, strong work ethic and resiliency to their work, and we are honored to support them as they work to grow their businesses in the Dallas community.”
Serving in the military provides valuable skills that veterans can use for the rest of their lives, so it’s no surprise that many former service members go on to run their own businesses after returning to civilian life.
According to the, approximately 100,000 veterans live in Dallas county alone. Dallas Capital Bank does our part by supporting, encouraging and honoring our local Dallas veterans. Approximately 9 percent of U.S. businesses are veteran-owned, contributing more than $1.14 trillion to the economy each year and employing 5.8 million people. Texas ranks second behind California with the most veteran-owned business at approximately 215,000 businesses. Dallas makes up of the state’s veteran-owned businesses, or roughly 10% of all Dallas county businesses, exceeding the national average.
Dallas is a leader in supporting Veteran-owned businesses, and Dallas Capital Bank considers it a privilege to help local veterans prosper by growing their businesses.
This Veterans Day, we invite you to join us in honoring our nation’s Veterans. And to those who have served, we salute you and thank you for your service and commitment to our country and the Dallas community.
