Mansfield Veterans Small Business Award by the National Veteran Small Business Coalition. The award recognizes a veteran small business owner who provides employment opportunities to veterans and who, like Gordon Mansfield, gives back to veterans and their families.

In 2011, with revenues of $22 Million, B3 Solutions had 19 veteran employees. In 2012, with revenues of $32 Million, B3 Solutions increased the number of veteran employees to 59. Today, 35% of all B3 Solutions employees are veterans.
According to Bud; "We are obligated to those who have borne the battle, and to the fullest extent possible we owe them employment opportunities after they complete their service. We cannot afford to ignore the sacrifices our veterans have made to protect and secure our nation."
In January 2013, Mr. Almas decided he wanted to do more in addition to the company's financial donations to various veteran organizations, hence he officially established the B3 Solutions' Veterans Outreach Program. The goal of the program is to be the conduit between other corporations and institutions and non-profit organizations to help veterans and their families financially and through other support efforts.
