Founders' Corner

I write about everything that helps US veterans, the organizations that support them, and US small businesses. And I propose to my readers that they also become involved in our important cause. Towards that end, I also write about HirePatriots' exclusive Cause Marketing strategy to promote the businesses that support us. And I introduce ways that patriots and veterans can earn an income from home or office through HirePatriots.com. HirePatriots.com is a program of Patriotic Hearts 501c3. We encourage US residents to post Day Job for their local veterans. And we allow any business to post their jobs and search our resumes for free too.

Mark Baird

Hello, I'm Mark Baird and I founded Hire Patriots. My wife and I are 'helpers.' We are concerned about meeting the practical needs of our US veterans veterans and their families. We began a job board for local residents to post chores that they need help with. It has been very successful. Thousands of local US Military and veterans partially or entirely support themselves from our website. We are looking for others near US Military bases who would also like to have a HirePatriots.com website for their location. We also hold welcome home parties, military marriage retreats, job fairs and create military family gardens.

Instead she has continued to lift my spirit with smiles, laughter and constant reminders of all of the blessing we possess too. One of the greatest blessings we have is our ability to help thousands of US...

Leader-Servants

Posted by on in News
Every good US military NCO and officer is also a 'leader-servant.' They all care much more about the lives of those that follow them than their own.

HirePatriots RV Ready to Roll To Your Town

Posted by on in News
My wife and I have moved into an RV again tomorrow. We founded HirePatriots almost a decade ago. When we started we owned our 3 bedroom house.  We had savings. And I owned a small business that was growing. We were set. No more worries. No more debt. We had just blue skies ahead. But then a U.S. Marine knocked on our door one day and everything changed. This U.S. Marine needed to earn some extra money for an emergency family issue. He asked to help us with chores and repairs around our home and yard. And when he told us...

This transient invisible particle of creation can explain and prove the existence of sub-atomic entities such as ‘quarks’ and ‘strands.’ It opens up multiple other realms of discovery and accomplishment. It may become the greatest discovery of human existence. “We're reaching into the fabric of the Universe at a level we've never done before," scientists said. “We're on the frontier now, on the edge of a new exploration,” Unfortunately, this great...
