Coming home isn’t easy for many vets. Transitioning back to civilian life is already hard enough, but the fact that 25% of veterans aged 19-25 remain jobless only makes things worse.
The appalling reality is that many of the brave young men and women who gave so much for their country have come home to so very little. As the number of homeless veterans rises, one man decided it was time to make a difference.
Mark Doyle started “Rags of Honor,” a simple t-shirt company, to employ 4 veterans who were desperate for work. Mark held his breath hoping he could keep the doors open and his brave young men employed.
Thankfully his idea was a success and his business has only grown over the years. Mark now employs 22 veterans and he hopes there will soon be room for more.
