How to Start a Family Run Business Are you looking for a business you can start inexpensively that will support you and your family and give you and your spouse a chance to work together?  A janitorial maintenance business may be just what you are looking for! US Military Maintenance is an effort to put entrepreneurs into business inexpensively and fast.

Why Celebrate “Memorial Day?”

Posted by on in News
Memorial Day 2015: Why? What Does it mean? Since 9/11/01 America has lost over 10,000 Americans, 8,000+ of these citizens were those that volunteered to join the US military after that heinous attack. On May 25, 2015 we will all share a responsibility and a duty to honor these beloved men and women of our nation. Unlike “Veterans Day” that honors all US veterans, Memorial Day is dedicated to those who have given their lives while in US military service. It is a day of remembrance for their sacrifices. It is the least that we as a nation can do. The...

50+ ? We want you...

Posted by on in News
I have been a volunteer budget coach for over 20 years. I usually receive a call when people are laid off from a job and they need to survive this season of life. Unfortunately many times for the 50+ crowd this season doesn’t end.   I have to say that never before have I seen more 50+ high quality men and women looking for work.  To save money their company let them go. Yes it’s true our age group does cost more to employ than a 25 year old but we are worth it. We are mature, have decision making skills and...

Helping Homeless Veterans

Posted by on in News
Victor in the right of this picture used to have a good job. But when the company he worked for downsized in 2008 he was laid off. Due to his age he was unable to find another job. Now, he fishes everyday for his food. But recently his gear was stolen. Our homeless mission received a donation and bought Victor new poles, reels and tackle. Too many of our US veterans have fallen through the cracks of society. Some live in chronic pain that prevents them from working; some are emotionally and or mentally wounded; but most are good men and...

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- It all began in Raleigh, North Carolina with a flurry of plastic bombshells. A few years ago, 10-year-old twins -- Carter and Jack Hanson-- got really into the game Battleship. That got them interested in naval warfare in general, which eventually led to a family vacation to see the Yorktown - a retired aircraft carrier in Charleston, South Carolina.  "My mind was just blown," said Carter.  The kids say the Yorktown changed their lives.  "I just realized how amazing history can be," added Carter. And it was about to get even better. On that same trip the boys...

Celebrate Easter Every Day!

Posted by on in Interesting
We are all born selfish. It is this survival instinct to seek our own self-interests that runs the world politics and economy. Look where that attitude has gotten us. Our world is full of war, death, poverty, hunger and suffering. Our ecology is dying because of our narcissism. And with nuclear weapons, we are always on the brink of annihilation. One has to be blind, deaf and a dunce not to realize the way we are running the world is not working. And yet, every day we continue doing “business as usual.” There are two ways of living in this world...

 As he pulls up her colorful blankets and tucks his daughter Raegan in for bed, Retired Army 1st Sgt. Seth Kastle knows that tonight "bedtime" will be a little different. Tonight, Seth will read his daughters "Why Is Dad So Mad?" — a book he wrote about himself.  Kastle served for 16 years in the Army Reserve, and was deployed to Qatar, Afghanistan, and Iraq.

Great Way to Thank US Veterans!

Posted by on in For Businesses
HirePatriots.com. has been connecting US military, veterans and their families with the residents in their local community through its popular website for more than 10 years. Whenever someone needs help with chores around their home, yard or business for a day or a few, they post it on HirePatriots.com’s free One Day job board. These jobs create a critical extra income stream for local US military, veterans and their spouses.

A Combat Veteran's Struggle

Posted by on in News
I met this tall and imperious US combat veteran at Saddleback Church: The mega- church created by Rick Warren, the author of the best seller A Purpose Filled Life. I began attending the church’s veterans meetings. The veteran who took me there was Greg, a three tour Vietnam War Army veteran. He was well over six feet tall and had a prophet’s beard. Greg had lived in trash dumpsters since his honorable discharge in 1973. He lived for just one reason when he returned ‘home’ to the States: to stay drunk. The police knew Greg well. As a courtesy, every Christmas...

Veterans Moving Help was honored this week to be called upon to move former Tuskegee Airman Stephen Lawrence and his wife Virginia to The Atrium in Gainesville Florida. The Lawrences were downsizing and selling their home and chose the Atrium( a holiday retirement community) because of its wonderful staff, beautiful building and amenities. Even at age 90, Mr. Lawrence proved to be a capable Mover, lifting items despite our insistence that he relax. A little background:   The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African-American Air Force pilots to serve in World War II. At 90,  Sgt. Stephen Lawrence recalls with great...

Increase Your Options

Posted by on in Jobs For Veterans
I went down to Florida for a couple weeks thawing out from the New York winter and I noticed a disproportionate amount of seniors still working. They are driving me from the airport, making my coffee, checking me in at the hotel, giving me tours and even serving me my food. What happened along the way I wondered that eliminated the possibility of them retiring?  As I spoke to some of them I learned they had good jobs but financial events happened they did not count on. Their 401K became a 201K, their money was all tied up in their house...
