BATON ROUGE - Veterans with disabilities went back to boot camp at LSU, this time to battle the business world.

LSU's Third Annual Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities brought in 19 veterans from across the country. EBV helps veterans build business plans, understand and reach their target markets and provides a network of veterans with common goals.

Many said they've had hard times since serving in the military, but programs like this help.

"I didn't think it was within my grasp but this program, and all the research that I've been doing, there's business owners out there that started where I'm at keep moving forward and my dreams will be realized," said Jason Lehr.

EBV is a free program hosted at eight universities across the country by the Stephenson Entrepreneurship Institute. For more information on the program, visit their website
