Forbes contributor Mark L. Rockefeller recognizes Bottle Breacher as a thriving “vetrepreneurs” business. Vetrepreneurs do things differently. They apply lessons from military service to business. They unflinchingly handle risk. They rely on a tight-knit network of their fellow veterans for support and encouragement. And they understand perseverance like no other group of individuals in the country.
