I am a former naval officer and arrogantly felt I "knew it all" when it came to military benefits etc. However, I could not have been more wrong. My association with the SWVBRC was not only enjoyable, but I now enjoy thousands of dollars in military benefits that I did not know existed for me. The difference this has made in my family's financial situation is beyond words. My special thanks to Albert Renteria who was instrumental and key in plugging me in to a very convoluted network of well-meaning but highly bureaucratic organizations. It was only by him running this gauntlet and interference for me that I was able have been successful in the end. My deepest thanks and appreciation for all the good work he, the SWVBRC and the ARRC does for us veterans!!

All the best,
Steve Wilson

This company does such great work and helps so many veterans. If we had more foundations and business's that thought of others first instead of themselves first America would be a better country. Without our service men and women we wouldn't have this country and I think standing with and for the veterans is the least that the Americans can do for what they have done and sacrificed for us.

As a Marine Corp Veteran the SWVBRC has helped me get some of the benefits I am entitled to. The organization gave me the information I needed to get and apply for my benefits. The center has helped me plan for my future as well as open up many different doors to help secure the future I want. I am so grateful for what the center has done for me that I now volunteer there.

I had questions about what the Resource Center did to help veterans. I spoke to a very nice man who answered many of my questions.

As a volunteer for the SWVBRC, I've been one of many Veterans who have enjoyed the many uncovered treasures made available to the Veteran community. Just a few weeks ago, I was awarded a grant to get a few good technical certifications. The SWVBRC is a great place for the community to connect with resource providers.

Having know Albert Renteria since age 12, I am not at all surprised by the wonderful accomplishments he has made through Southwest Veterans Business Center. His passion for and desire to improve the lives of our military heroes draws in some of the most loving and passionate volunteers imaginable - people who truly care and want to make a difference in the lives of our veterans.

As the founder, Chairman and CEO, I have had the honor to meet thousands of Americans and many of which have served. It is their efforts that have fueled me and inspired to give all that I can afford. Do visit us at www.WhereCommuitiesServeVeterans.org to see all that the communities do to serve our Veterans.
