For increasingly more United States veterans, starting a solo venture is a desirable career path following service.
In fact, with 200,000 service members coming off duty each year over the next five years, 25 percent of them want to build a business, according to Bunker Labs, a national non-profit organization built by military veterans to empower other veterans to become business owners. Through chapters in 12 cities, the group provides educational programming, mentors, events, and local networks to help them thrive.
Such was the case for Sandra Edwards, who served eight years in the Army as an administrative specialist.
