Veteran's Day is Wednesday November 11 and this week, several groups are working to help veterans find work and find ways to market their businesses.

On Monday Bunker Labs celebrated its grand opening.

The facility will provide services for entrepreneurs with ties to the military including veterans, active service members and their spouses. Those services include training and networking.

"So what we're going to do is really vertically integrate all the veteran entrepreneurs or would be entrepreneurs in this community and really just pair them with some resources that are not only national but maybe would have been a little out of their grasp locally," Aaron Lawrence with Bunker Labs said.
