Hundreds of thousands of veterans are coming home over the next several years as the U.S. scales down its presence in the Middle East.

Brittany Laughlin, an entrepreneur in her late 20s who's already literally been around the world, wants to put some of them to work.

Laughlin is the kind of person who tends to set lofty ambitions, both personally and professionally, and then reverse-engineer a way to achieve them. She gave herself a personal goal, for example, of traveling to all 7 continents by age 25, which she accomplished last year.
