It's always a good thing for the community when you shop locally, keeping that money right here in our own backyard. What's even cooler, is when you shop at a local business that is owned by a veteran. So, not only are you keeping that money local, you are helping to support veterans.

One thing I love about Abilene is the support the community gives to our military. With Dyess Air Force Base being right in our backyard, the military presence is strong, and along with that comes a ton of support. But, you may not know that some of our awesome local businesses are actually veteran-owned, giving us even more options to support the military.

Check out some of these Abilene area businesses that are locally owned and/or operated by veterans.
