The military teaches discipline as well I was a Chief, I managed and evaluated many people. However, I was a hard worker before I joined the military as stated I had saved over 5,000 from cutting lawns as a teen.

No one just retired and stayed in Japan working for CSC he is a network manager making 6 figures. Another person I know is managing a pool company in FL the rest are still in the military serving. I would still be in the Navy if my wife was in the Air Force but I had to retire to raise my boys now since I already gave 20 years to our country.

Well I have an update. I have my logo being designed now and will be done in the next 24hours. I plan to get a mower, edeger and blower and make some flyers, business cards and hit a few homes in the area to test the waters.

Here is the logo. John you did a great job at it too!

Do you have any pics of you when you were in the military?

If you do, I'd love to see them.

I think your pics and story will help inspire other veterans to get their lawn care usiness started as well.

This would be a great story to include in a future GopherHaul episode.

Thanks. Sorry I dont know your name are you the guy on all the videos named Steve?

I have to look for pictures but are you thinking of making me a youtube video star? Just kidding I think its great I found your videos months ago on youtube and got started in the adventure. I got to run but will get back online in a day or two. I got to put my twins to bed now.

Yea that's me! I am glad you liked the videos! All of us inspire each other on this forum and then the videos reach out to others all over the world who haven't found the forum.

We have over a million views on the show so far!

I can't wait to see some pics!
