The Pioneer Days:
After a spell at a Warrior Reunion Foundation Retreat, U.S. Navy Veteran Michael Quilty had himself an epiphany. Seemed that lots of veterans were strugglin' to turn their skills into trades once they hung up their military hats. Now, them Wild West-style pop-up shops of Wild Bill's were a match made in cowboy heaven – just the ticket for them veterans lookin' to wrangle their military know-how into the wild world of entrepreneurship.
