Beaumont, Texas – May 10, 2017 – The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has verified Wheeler Commercial as a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business. Wheeler Commercial is eligible to participate in Veterans First Contracting Opportunities with the VA. The VA spends over $3 billion with eligible veteran-owned small businesses helping to stimulate the small business community and create growth for the economy.
“This has been a long but rewarding process,” said Lee Wheeler. “As a veteran and small business owner, I am very proud to finally get our official certification. We had many employees working on this but it would not have happened without Jenny Bonham. She was instrumental in pushing this through for us.”
Lee Wheeler is a United States Marine who served from 1989 to 1999.
