    It's on Paducah's Southside,if I remember the item on one of the local radio websites.
    Kinda disproves the idea that corporate America is against the soldiers for fighting in Iraq.
    It's always good to see stuff like this,isn't it?

    Veterans Find New Life In Pizza

    POSTED: 2:04 am EST February 2, 2007
    UPDATED: 6:45 am EST February 2, 2007

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- The owners of franchise companies are helping war veterans become business entrepreneurs.

    Robbie Doughty, of Kentucky, lost his legs in a roadside bombing in Iraq and was searching for a new life outside the Army when a call came from Michael Ilitch, the founder and owner of the Little Caesars pizza chain, offering a business proposition.

    Did Doughty want to open a Little Caesars franchise? Doughty said he didn't hesitate a second before saying he'd do it. He and a business partner celebrated their pizza store's grand opening Thursday.

    Since last November, any qualified, honorably discharged veteran can receive $10,000 in discounts to become a Little Caesars franchise operator. Discounts for veterans with disabling injuries can reach $68,000.

    Besides Little Caesars, about 250 companies that belong to the International Franchise Association offer incentives to help veterans get set up in business.
