In 2012, we launched a largely inappropriate military cartoon known called The Damn Few as well as a new Vetrepreneurial initiative to give back to our community and build a new generation of military entrepreneurs. We are founded, owned, and operated by military veterans. We do not operate a politically correct work environment. We are huge fans of the Constitution, MMA, Rugby, awesome art and bacon.
