CHICAGO (TheStreet) -- While Veterans Day is a time to honor those who served in the military, it also reminds us of all what still needs to be done for our youngest service members. In most parts of the country, those who were injured in Iraq and Afghanistan are facing the same dismal employment prospects as everyone else, even while dealing with the added physical and psychological challenges of a disability.A stint in the military can teach leadership and hone decision-making skills, all benefits for future business owners. But it's not easy to make the shift from a military unit to life as an independent entrepreneur, especially while adjusting to life with a disability.
