Marine vet starts creative business to help homeless vets in San Diego

A Marine veteran says it was a drive through downtown San Diego changed his life and inspired him to start a business.

The cammies on the sewing machine once made its way over to the Middle East to train Jordanian soldiers to fight against ISIS a little over a year ago. Now they’re getting new life as a dog-bone toy.

For each product he sales, he delivers a supply bag to a homeless veteran. “We give them clean socks, clean shirt, toothpaste, toothbrush, and a meal.”

It’s the same kind of package the Marine could have used himself when he suddenly became homeless. He returned from deployment, went through a divorce, and his grandparents who raised him passed away – he was homeless just a year and a half ago. He found help at the VA.

It was there that he started Cammies and Canines, they make more than just toys. He actually helps employ homeless veterans as well.
