AUBURN UNIVERSITY – If Renee Floyd can quickly replace a fuel line in an Army convoy truck on the dangerous, war-torn streets of Mogadishu, as she did one Somali afternoon in 1993, the entrepreneur and small business-owner can change your vehicle’s oil anywhere.
After 21 years as a light-wheeled vehicle diesel engine mechanic in the U.S. Army, Floyd is now the proud owner of BRF Mobile Lube Services in Phenix City, Ala., a business that allows her to provide oil changes remotely.
Enter the Entrepreneurship Boot Camp for Veterans with Disabilities, or EBV – a national program that helps hundreds of veterans, like Floyd, begin their own businesses. The program, which started in 2007 and has included a satellite base at Florida State University since 2008, offers entrepreneurship and small business training to veterans with disabilities, or Wounded Warriors.
