MYSTIC, CONNECTICUT.  This Veterans Day 2023, Work Vessels for Vets, a unique charity that awards equipment to injured veterans,  announces $180,000 in equipment and mentorship in 2023 to 23 veteran-entrepreneurs in 18 states across America.  These new entrepreneurs are overcoming severe combat injuries such as PTSD, TBI, and compromised bodies to embark on their dreams of self-employment. 

The volunteers of Work Vessels for Vets have learned that it is more than just an award of equipment to these injured American servicemen and women.

"We deliver real tools of change, keys to a new future and often a personal lifeline when needed most.  In turn, these American heroes inspire change by building companies, some now worth millions.  They create jobs for their fellow veterans and their communities.  All they really need is a hand up," says Cathy Cook of WVFV.
