Studies show many veterans struggle to find long-term employment when they leave the service, but some choose to go their own way and become entrepreneurs instead.

Iraq War veteran Chris Pomeleo found himself in that situation, and last year he opened Prohibition Barbers in Minneapolis.

The business has been a smashing success, with Pomeleo earning a six-figure income for his one-man operation.

But because it was such a hit, Pomeleo is now turning his attention to hiring efforts.

He said he knows a few vets who are now in school to be barbers, and has plans to give them jobs when they graduate.

This is just another example of the many ways in which veterans can help each other once they return from duty.
