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.

Who Am I ?

Posted by on in About HirePatriots.com
Belief in God and Jesus Christ has always been the foundation of my life. I encountered God in a dramatic way when I was very young. Some discount my experience and tell me that I was too young for it to have been as significant that I claim it to be. But they are wrong. It was then and remains the focal point of my entire life.   My parents never attended church or a synagogue. I was never encouraged to believe in God. In fact, my home life was filled with terror due to extreme alcoholism and the resulting...
