As a nation we may not agree if wars are fought because there was a clear and present danger or fought for personal, political, or business reasons. But we agree that we have the right to disagree and our disagreements make us stronger. And regardless of our national debates, the men and women of our armed forces put their lives on the line for God and country. That is a big part of what makes our country great. While there is debate about our country’s future direction, our war fighters’ purpose is always clear. Nobly, rightfully ignoring the business and politics...

The HirePatriots Community Program

Posted by on in Community
  HirePatriots is creating local community chapters across America to support their local US military, veterans and their families. The first step is for us to seek sustainable employment for veterans. To accomplish this we call companies everyday and ask them to post jobs on our site. We also post blogs about their company and about the jobs they need to fill. We also hold job fairs, including virtual job fairs. And when veterans send us their resumes we talk with them and then we call back the companies that want us to fill their positions and recommend those veterans. And...

Great Video if You Need Income

Posted by on in Biz Ops
Patrick Mellody is a HirePatriots member. I have known him for several years. He is a straight arrow. I trust him completely. He has a very sincere desire to help others, that is why he joined HirePatriots. Here is a video I asked him to create about the company with which he is aligned. It has an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.  It is not multi-level marketing. It is just a product that everyone uses and a way to save money on what they already pay. It is way to earn income by helping your friends and neighbors reduce...

A Community Project for Schools

Posted by on in For Kids
Recently, public and private schools across America have contacted HirePatriots asking about our program. They see it as a way for their students to earn community service credits. They can help spread the word in their communities and get more jobs posted for their area’s military and veterans. The students can also use our popular site to publish their stories, essays, reports, videos and pictures that pertain to US veterans, patriotism and America.  I am excited about this because when I taught high school English in California I always made sure that every student in my class got published in the...

Why I am Angry About US Veterans

Posted by on in Jobs For Veterans
I am offended and angry about how our youth who volunteered to stand in harm’s way for us after the 9-11 attack are treated, ignored and forgotten! At this writing, 700,000+ men and women who joined our armed forces after America was attacked on 9/11/01 are looking for employment and not being hired. They left their homes and gave up all that they had to defend us from multiple foreign enemies. They sacrificed a tremendous amount, so did their wives and families. Repeated combat deployments during these long wars have made their mark on these valiant warriors. They are like steel!...

VETERANS AND THE WORKPLACE

Posted by on in News
The workplace can be an extremely frustrating place for most veterans, it has most of the things that we tend to veer away from. Workplaces have a decent amount of people from the employees to the customers, most are loud and every workplace has some type of conflict going on at one point or another. What you have to remember at this point is that you must always remain in control and it is truly important to think before you speak. This is especially true if you feel yourself starting to get angry in a professional environment, remember that you...

It all begins with having a truck. We are renting trucks now, but that severely reduces the funds we have to hire veterans. -- Can you help? We are looking for a person or company to donate a truck, however we have a limited budget and can afford...

Our Christian Service

Posted by on in Community
My wife and I began HirePatriots and our non-profit Patriotic Hearts 10 years ago. Since then well over 100,000 US military veterans and their families have been helped in a variety of ways through our unique outreach. But it has required tremendous financial sacrifice to do so and unending labor. We have forfeited all of our worldly possessions, but we have gained so much more from heavenly realms.    Tori and I are carrying on and trusting Jesus to provide, as he always does. God is faithful. We hope that He uses our perseverance to amaze people. Perhaps our lives will...

Posted by on in Biz Ops
Over the years, Veteran organizations have expanded to take on the task of helping millions of veterans deal with the transition from military life into civilian life. Some of the organization are helping veterans deal with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), or recover from physical war injuries.  Others focus on temporary and permanent housing, while others focus on job placement. Organizations like "Veterans Small Business Association Foundation" is helping to develop Veteran Entrepreneurs.  Putting a veteran into an appropriate business, and mentoring them so they have early success, is not only good for a veteran, but for our economy. Many of these Veteran Entrepreneurs hire...

Long Term, Full Time Employment Disappearing

Posted by on in News
One of every ten Americans who lost a full-time job since 2007 have not found another full time job! The facade of a recovering economy reveals that the drop in unemployment is due to exactly what many such as myself have always suspected. New research by Alan B. Krueger, the former chairman of President Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers,  found that only one in 10 workers who had been unemployed over an extended period of time in a given month between 2008 and 2012 had returned to full-time work.  Instead we find that most Americans who have lost their jobs since the...

The Meaning of "Veteran Entrepreneur"

Posted by on in News
INTRO When it comes to business I honestly have a unique story, I took a few risk and did some things that some people probably wouldn’t have in order to get to where I am at today.  When I started my first company a few years ago I set out with one mission, I wanted to create a company that the local market had never seen before.  In less than a year I accomplished this task, moving into our second year we took 80% of the accounts in our market and we were looking at the prospect of expanding into...
