Military veterans aren't starting businesses at the same rate they once did, but some, such as Carl Churchill, are still taking an entrepreneurial path after they re-enter civilian life. Churchill, an Army veteran, and his wife, Lori, started Lock-n-Load Java about two years ago, and the coffee shop is expected to generate more than $120,000 in revenue this year. Meanwhile, organizations such as the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University are offering resources to help veterans succeed.
