The first inaugural VET-OHIO EXPO was held on September 9, 2021 and was an overwhelming success.  We had 40 Exhibitors attend the event and the public had an opportunity to meet some of our amazing veteran owned businesses that support us right here in our communities. 

Veteran business owners have served their country and continue to serve in their communities and this is one small way to recognize them and give them the support they deserve!  Save the Date for the next event!!

PROMOTING 2022 Events  Celebrating Veterans & Veteran Entrepreneurship


March 7, 2020, The "Buy Vet 2020" Initiative officially launched at the National Veterans Memorial and Museum Rally Point, combined with a Press Releases from the Pickerington Chamber of Commerce and various forms of Social Media outlets i.e. Facebook, Twitter and Linked-In.  Monthly "Vet Net" events have been temporarily cancelled due to Covid-19, safety is the number one priorty! 

In December 2021, Think Veterans First transitioned to Think Veterans First in support of veterans as well as our Veteran Owned Businesses.  There will be regular updates in the weekly newsletter, on the website, and on Social Media where you can keep up to date.  It is also vital to ensure we do everything we can to minimize the negative impact to the veteran-owned business community as we walk through this crisis together.  If you have a veteran business in your community, please do what you can to support them during this unprecedented time and "Thank You" for your support. 

Please support us as you are able as we work to support our veterans.
