According to the Department of Veteran’s Affairs, as of 2016, the projected active Veteran population was 21,681,000. There are several assistance programs for Veterans to offer our sincerest and eternal thanks for the sacrifice that they and their families have made to protect our freedom. One of those phenomenal programs is the VA Home Loan Program. Shockingly, only an estimated 2.5 million Veterans take advantage of the VA Home Loan Program! Mountain West Financial is exceptionally grateful for each and every one of our Veterans and has been offering VA loans since our opening in 1990. Let our experience work for you!
