A Killeen businessman has helped opened a new door to Central Texan veterans.
JDog Junk Removal and Hauling opened a location in Killeen thanks to Jayd Bosiacki
The disabled veteran spent over a decade in the army.
But when he retired in 2000, he wondered, "What am I going to do next?"
He, like many veterans, was trying to have an easy transition into civilian life.
"I was looking for a way for myself to earn and a way to help others," Boschiacki said.
He came across JDog Junk Removal and Hauling when he was looking for veteran-owned businesses.
The former Army Ranger said partnering up with the company was meant to be.
"Folks called me JDog when I was in military," Bosiacki said. "I had a tattoo on my arm, a bull dog. And with that being their logo, the dog, the name and the colors-it just seemed to be a natural fit for me."
The nationwide company has 7 locations in Texas. Bosiacki said starting up a location in Killeen only made sense because a lot of those at Fort Hood decide to retire in the area.
"We served our country and now we serve the communities," Bosiacki said. "We operate on the same principles as the military does."
He opens for business on Monday September 5, but had an official ribbon cutting ceremony at Joker's Ice House on Thursday afternoon.
"A lot of time people have junk laying around and they don't know what to do with it," Bosiacki said. "So we can remove that stress and uncluttered their lives."
