Entrepreneurs with military backgrounds appear on this episode airing during Veterans Small Business Week 2014.

In addition, in this episode, a Captain in the Army Corps of Engineers who is based in Louisville, Kentucky has a great solution for those who, like her, are fans of physical training but need a non-slip protective glove to safely shield hands from injury during weight and bar work; a former Marine and his wife from Columbus, OH, seek a $75,000 investment for their elite canine training program; a young Army vet from Front Royal, VA has designed the perfect carrying case for men; and a former Navy SEAL and his wife from Tucson, AZ have a unique bottle opener made of recycled .50 caliber shells.
