Veterans are natural entrepreneurs. They are disciplined, goaloriented self-starters. Accustomed to accountability, they know the value of being decisive and flexible. There are approximately 22.5 million veterans who have served in our armed forces. With the jobless rate persistently high, and unemployment among veterans outpacing the national average, training in entrepreneurship makes sense. Leveraging the talents of veterans will promote self-employment and will help stimulate the economy.
