  • Veteran Video Spotlight - James King

    Did you know that veterans represent only 6% of the total U.S. population but account for 13.5% (or 3.7 million) of all small businesses in the United States? These businesses employ 5.8 million Americans; pay wages in excess of $210 billion and contribute $1.7 trillion to the U.S. GDP.

    Our veterans committee is always considering new ways the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce might support veterans in our community, our workforce and as entrepreneurs. So in 2018 we've introduced veteran video spotlights. Each video spotlight features veteran business owners – highlighting the diversity, creativity and community service of veterans who continue to strengthen our country with their small business endeavors and entrepreneurial spirit.

    February 2018
    In the Spotlight: James King, owner of America's Swimming Pool Co. of Northern Virginia



    Are you a veteran turned small-business owner? Want to be in a video spotlight? Please send me an email and tell me about your military service and your business.

    Charles McCaffrey is the volunteer chair of the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce Veterans Committee. His fulltime job as director of the Veterans Business Outreach Center at Community Business Partnership pays the bills.
