CHANTILLY, Va. – July 3, 2018 – AbleVets LLC, a leading provider of health IT solutions for government, is pleased to announce it is a nominee for a Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce Distinguished Service Award. AbleVets will compete in the Meritorious Veteran-Owned Business category (established businesses) against 13 other worthy nominees.
