Col. Jack Jacobs On Veterans Entrepreneurship At UTC
Jack Jacobs is a retired U.S. Army colonel who served in Vietnam.
He is a recipient of the Medal of Honor, this nation’s highest military award for valor.
A few days ago, Col. Jacobs came to Chattanooga.
He visited the Charles H. Coolidge National Medal of Honor Heritage Center - and our campus here at UTC, as part of this summer’s Veterans Entrepreneurship Program: a seven-day boot camp to help veterans become entrepreneurs, established ten years ago by the Gary W. Rollins College of Business.
