Veterans Bridge Home Announces June Veteran of the Month

CHARLOTTE, NC (June 24, 2019) - Veterans Bridge Home is proud to announce Larry Gast as our June Veteran of the Month.

Gast, a former U.S. Air Force Captain, is the founder and CEO of LEG Ventures LLC, a veteran-owned small business that provides aid to business owners.

Located in Charlotte, LEG Ventures LLC is committed to helping businesses begin and operate successfully while minimizing stress. Their main goal is to get the business owner to a state of profitability and achievement by giving them the tools, services, and development needed to take their business to the next level.

LEG Ventures LLC, formed in 2004, began to help lot developers with equity capital. Today, it has grown to be a single source of financing programs and services for many businesses.

"We're in business to help businesses be more profitable and less stressful!" says Larry on his company's website.

Part of Larry's influence can be seen at Veterans Bridge Home, where Larry helped employee Dwayne Wells get hired, someone whom we are certainly thankful to have on our staff. He's also a part of the VBH/MOAA mentorship program, where he not only embraced being a mentor for not just one Veteran, but three.

Larry graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy in 1985 with a B.S. in Economics and Operations Research. He became a Captain in the Air Force and, while working as an active duty officer by day, Larry completed his MBA by night. After his military work, Larry decided to become an entrepreneur and investor, and his talents have not been wasted. From his work experience with finance, projects, sales, and business development, Larry had the tools and goals needed to start his LEG Ventures LLC. He has a passion for giving back to veterans and veteran business owners, and it shows through his business as he includes veteran-owned business discounts on all services.

Larry goes out of his way to aid veterans outside his company, as well. Local veterans can benefit from Larry's monthly lunch meetings that focus on how to start, own, and operate businesses. Larry also hosts a monthly mixer for any veteran looking to expand his or her circle of connections, including both social and professional networks. Veterans Bridge Home shares the same values as Larry: helping veterans take control of their lives, businesses, and community. Larry's impact goes beyond helping businesses; it transforms lives. We are excited to have Larry as our Veteran of the Month, and we thank him for his service.
