After eight years in the Army, Joshua Schaefer’s dream of being a business owner came true with the opening a company that allows him to create jobs for veterans while helping to tidy up the community.

Schaefer is the owner of the JDog Junk Removal and Hauling franchise in Pflugerville. The national company is dedicated to helping military veterans run their own franchises and hire fellow vets.

In October, the U.S. Department of Labor said the national unemployment rate for veterans was 2.7%. JDog officials say they want to get that number down to 1%. Schaefer said it is great to be part of a company that has a goal to help decrease unemployment among veterans.

“There are other goals than just making money,” said Schaefer. “I think that’s a bigger mission.”
