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.

How to Hire "Work Ready" US Veterans

Posted by on in For Businesses
The best method for filling your positions is to use our US Military Veteran Hiring Events. We fully prepare 50+ US veterans by working closely with the Labor Department's America Career Centers. We direct our job seeking veterans to utilize their workshops. Those that complete this process we bring to our hiring events so that companies can hire veterans who are fully "work ready." These veterans would have studied the attending companies’ website and be prepared to start a career with them. HirePatriots.com is one of the most popular websites in America. We usually rank in the top 20,000 US sites for...

Republicans versus US Veterans

Posted by on in News
This is what I do not get: The Republican Party, that stands for Christian and Conservative ideals, the party that chose to send our young men and women off to fight In Iraq and Afghanistan, are continually cutting benefits to our US veterans. We all are aware of how poorly the V.A. hospitals have been caring for our injured troops. A large cause of this is because we do not have enough V.A. Hospital staff to care for all of our injured troops. The V.A. needs $18B to meet its staffing requirements. The Congressional Republicans are insisting that they will only...

Perfect Example of BIG Government

Posted by on in News
Federal Gov’t Says “No” to School Bake Sales Communities across America since before America even gained its liberty in 1781, when England's Cornwallis surrendered to George Washington at Yorktown, local schools have been holding “bake sales” to raise funds to provide for additional educational resource and activities. This has always been a part of our schools. Today, parents, mostly moms, get together and hold bake sales throughout the year and sell them at various school events. It brings parents and families together. It unites the entire Parent Teacher Association (PTA) in a meaningful and positive way. The US Agriculture Department (USDA)...

How I First Met God

Posted by on in For Families
I realize that not everyone believes in God. And I know that, of the many millions that do believe in God, not all believe in the Christ revealed in the Bible. And I respect them and care about them. However, for me, faith in my God was never an issue. I had a supernatural revelation as a small child. It is incredible to many, but it is reality to me. My parents did not attend church. However, one of them would wake up when I was little and drop me off at a church for use as free babysitting throughout the...

What To Do For Retirement

Posted by on in About HirePatriots.com
Ten years ago, I thought that my wife and were done with labor and were starting a life of ease. But we are nowhere near retiring.  God gave us a 'calling' late in life. It has required every ounce of our resources and strength. I sometimes wish I was in my twenties instead of my 60s. For ten years, we have been building HirePatriots.com and our 501c3 non-profit, Patriotic Hearts. We began next to Camp Pendleton Marine base, in Oceanside, where my grandpa and uncles were US Marines during WW II.   After a wounded US Marine knocked on our door and...

Why I Believe in Christ

Posted by on in News
I am a Christian. My parents weren’t. I was not raised to be one. I made this choice. And I have had multiple occasions throughout my life when I had to make the decision again to believe or not. I believe in the God of the bible for many reasons. Mostly because the Judeo-Christian God is the friendliest and most loving God offered among our world’s religions. Christianity basically says that no one can ever be good enough to earn the right to live eternally with God. It says that compared to his holiness, “all of our righteous deeds are like...
