For months I have been blogging about how to budget and save money. Today I am writing to inform you how to make some. Shortly after my daughter was married her husband joined the Marines.  They moved far away and we all quickly learned about the challenges a Military Spouse endures.  They moved several times over the years and finding a job as a Military Spouse is difficult. Employers were glad your spouse was serving the country but not so glad that they would hire you and then have to re-hire and re-train the next person because you were relocated again. ...

US Military Maintenance is a program of Patriotic Hearts, a 501c3 charity, dedicated to assisting US military, veterans, and their spouses.  Our purpose is to create hundreds of V.O.B.s that employ thousands of US veterans. We provide everything you need to get started and to be successful. All we ask is to be reimbursed for our initial expenses. That way, we can continue to grow and help more veterans.  Few people realize how lucrative these businesses are. Here is a simple example: A 3000 sq. ft. business takes one hour to clean. It generally pays about $1700 a month to clean 5 days...

The New Secret to Getting Hired

Posted by on in News
This is very important information for job seekers. My name is Mark Baird. I have been helping US citizens and US veterans get good jobs for several decades. And I have held many job fairs and worked with thousands of employers. There has been a seismic shift in how to find a job that you must know about.  Did you know that statistics show that just 3% of resumes submitted online get read? And that number is dwindling quickly. We have a stagnant economy. We lose as many jobs as we gain. As new businesses are created, an equal number disappear....

See and Hear 2 Blackholes Colliding!

Posted by on in News
If you like mind blowing, brain stretching true stories Astro-Physics has plenty. A billion years ago, two black holes collided and created an explosion that emitted more energy than a trillion-billion suns! It was so powerful that we are still able to see and hear the cosmic ripple made by that explosion. It proves Einstein's theory that the universe is made of an invisible fabric that holds the weight of all objects in the cosmos. We call this unseen fabric "gravity." -- Watch this amazing video! ...

Another Great Recommendation

Posted by on in News
"I want to thank you for all you do for us veterans. I really never knew until recently, there were great organizations out there like yours that are willing to help us. The Soldier for Life- Transition Assistance Program, ((SFL-TAP), old ACAP) paints a picture of  doom and gloom for us retirees. They show us some federal programs but not all the private organizations out there like yours. Once again, thank you for your assistance, I look forward to my transition and plan on letting my peers that are exiting, know about the assistance your organization can provide."Joseph SutoMSG, USA Assistant...

In Defense of The Wounded Warrior Project

Posted by on in News
Recently CBS and some other news and media agencies have publicized some areas of concern about how donations to The Wounded Warrior Project, a premier veteran charity, have been spent. The criticism focuses mostly on expenditures on trips, meetings, conventions, hotels and first class airfare. But they failed to say that those expenses were just about 7% of their total revenue. That does not seem unreasonable for a nationwide charity with locations all across America. The Wounded Warrior Project was founded by a dear, old friend of mine, John Melia. He is a humble and honest man. He is my age...

World Economic Update

Posted by on in News
My Fellow Americans,  On the economic front, there are many, many mixed signals. Layoffs are rampant, especially in the oil & gas industry and in metals & mining. Major corporations such as BP (4,000 layoffs), GE (6,500 layoffs) and Walmart (closing 269 stores globally, 154 in the US, 16,000 employee layoffs worldwide, 10,000 in US) and many others are making the news for contracting rather than growing and creating new jobs. Thanks to the EPA bias against coal, the Census Bureau reports that West Virginia is now the only state in the country where more than half of adults are not...

Help! Help! Help! I screamed! The roar of the trucks diesel engine drowned out my cries. I had fallen asleep in a Dumpster and awakened just as it was being emptied into the back of a garbage truck. Totally disoriented, I landed face first in the filthy muck. I spit something vile out my mouth. Before I could gather my wits, I was being propelled forward towards the deadly whining of the trucks compactor. I was about to be crushed to death in back of a stinking garbage truck! Earlier that day, I had donated blood plasma. The donation was my...

A Great Business for Veterans to Own

Posted by on in Biz Ops
I have been helping US veterans find employment and to start businesses for 45 years. Many that I help are service disabled. Some have prosthetics, some have other kinds of injuries; and some have PTSD and find it difficult to work a typical 40-hour a week. I have focused largely on assisting these men and women by creating alternative employment options. One of my options is US Military Maintenance. It is a business for US veterans to own and then to hire other US veterans and their spouses. It is a very lucrative business to have, with an extremely low start-up...

I get inside many companies. Time and time again I see there is a “go to” person in every company. I migrate towards these people and more times than not I find a vet.  Not enough companies have learned the value of a vet. I asked my son-in-law if he put a dollar amount on his military training and his reserve training he said it would be about half a million dollars. What company would turn down a person with such intense training, work ethic and if he is not 15 minutes early to work he’s late. Just like you.  If...
