Companies cheating vets out of business

'The Dayton Daily News reports that the U.S. Veterans Affairs inspector general’s office has estimated $500 million worth of VA contracts through the Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Program go to ineligible businesses each year.

After the VA beefed up its review process over whether firms actually are headed by disabled veterans, it found 1,800 companies were not eligible. Of the 1,800, 70 were referred for criminal prosecution, according to a Nov. 30 report by the Government Accountability Office."
