Many Hispanic Veterans Turn to Entrepreneurship and Politics to Advance Hispanic Causes
Veterans Day marks the day the “War to End All Wars” came to a conclusion when parties signed the Armistice that ended World War I at the 11th minute after the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month.

Traditionally celebrated on Monday to create a three-day weekend, Veterans Day honors all veterans, including Medal of Honor winners, people who gave their lives in service and military personnel who served their country with honor. Hispanic Americans have long participated in the military, and their contributions inspire future generations.

Many business and government resources offer the returning veteran better opportunities for starting a Hispanic business, getting an education or entering politics.

Hispanic veterans contributions have paved the way for freedom and free enterprise, and business recognition of these accomplishments has resulted in many private and public resources for returning veterans.

The Library of Congress seeks to preserve Hispanic veterans’ contributions by recording memories of soldiers in two World Wars, Korea, Vietnam, and the Persian Gulf conflicts. The broad Veterans History Project seeks to memorialize Hispanic contributions of people who often suffered discrimination in earlier times.

Fortunately, this kind of discrimination and apathy has changed, and veterans returning from Afghanistan find brighter prospects than their progenitors.

Hispanic veterans return to broader opportunities in business and politics, but not all veterans emerge from war unscathed.

Veterans who live in rural areas often face barriers to health and mental health resources to treat conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder. Some Hispanic veterans stay unaware of the benefits available to them, but mobile clinics, community resources, small business loans, and job-placement services offer wide support for veterans from all branches of service.

Private enterprise and government resources pave the way for many Hispanic veterans to get further educations and training, open businesses and find jobs in the increasing number of Hispanic-oriented businesses.

People of Latino ancestry number 52 million in the United States, making Hispanics the largest ethnic minority. Increasing numbers of Hispanic veterans seek political office, and service to the country during wartime has always provided strong credentials in politics.
