Colin Archipley wakes up at 5 a.m. to write lesson plans for the agriculture training program for vets that he and his wife set up in 2007. At his small organic farm near San Diego, the vets study irrigation and hydroponics, work in the greenhouse, and get tips from entrepreneurs and investors for the business plans due at the end of the course. "They were trained to use rifles and coordinate air strikes, not operate businesses," Archipley says, "but we tap into the leadership skills they've obtained in the military."
