From CO2 reduction rides to stylishly recycled military bags, these social enterprises for veterans aim to support those who serve. Some of these businesses operate on the side of employing veterans themes and others use their products in order to donate a percentage of their products.

Each country tends to honor its military personnel in various ways, whether it is through specific holidays or national service support programs. All the same, however, veterans often have high suicide rates and high unemployment rates after the time that they have served fighting in wars overseas. One of the stand-out social enterprises for veterans is certainly Honoring the Path of the Warrior, which is sponsored by the San Francisco Zen Center. They run retreats from American veterans who served mostly in Iraq and Afghanistan.
