In December 2017, the owner of United Medical Design Builders LLC, Mr. Joseph Dial Jr., a service-disabled, veteran, was charged by the Justice Department with fraudulently obtaining contracts intended for service-disabled veteran-owned businesses. It seems that he didn’t really run the company but was just a figure-head for a co-conspirator, Troy Bechtel in a classic “rent-a-vet” scheme. Mr. Dial pleaded guilty for his part in the scheme in May 2018 and is set to be sentenced next week (January 28th).
