The Grand Ole Opry Salute to Heroes of the U.S. Military to feature EBV

The Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV), founded in 2007 at the Whitman School and operated by the Institute for Veterans and Military Families, was mentioned by Nashville.com in a story on the May 22 Grand Olde Opry salute to heroes of the U.S. military. The concert, which features country music stars and Opry members Rascal Flatts, Montgomery Gentry, Ronnie Milsap and Kellie Pickler, which is being co-sponsored by EBV partner Humana, will be broadcast as the premiere episode of “Noteworthy at the Opry” on GAC: Great American Country network on May 26 at 9 p.m. ET. In addition to performances and personal stories from the musical acts and interviews with other celebrities about the artists and music featured, the show includes a segment on the EBV, with on-camera interviews by EBV founder and IVMF executive director Mike Haynie, Barnes Professor of Entrepreneurship at Whitman, and EBV-Syracuse graduates and U.S. Marine Corps veterans Brian Iglesias and Justin Constantine about the experiences that led them to the EBV, their time in the program and entrepreneurship as a post-service career. Iglesias runs a multimedia company and Constantine is a successful serial entrepreneur. The show will also be seen by U.S. military around the world via the American Forces Television Network.
