LOVE + DEATH = HATE (THE WAR EQUATION)

Posted by on in News
Most of you may not know this but I am currently in the process of writing a book titled, “War + Death = Hate (The War Equation)”. Tonight after watching the news I felt that this would be a good time to start talking about the upcoming book and its message as I think it is really hitting home for a lot of people around the world. When we start to think and break down the true cause of wars it brings us back to basic human emotion. What causes such hatred in people that would create a drive in them...

HIRE VETERANS FOR THE RIGHT REASONS

Posted by on in News
We need to stop the campaigns that are only focusing on hiring veterans simply because they are veterans instead of focusing on what they bring to the table. On the way to work this morning I heard at least three radio commercials with the same message, “Do the honorable thing and hire our nation’s heroes."  As noble of a cause as this is, what message does this send to our veterans and those getting ready to transition out of the military? This message is saying that the public wants to see more employers hiring veterans...and they should be, but they need...

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)...

UNDERSTANDING T.B.I.: SURVIVE AND THRIVE

Posted by on in News
Tonight I had a break through that I had to share, it has motivated me to do another blog-miniseries. This time about dealing with and explaining the effects of traumatic brain injuries. A lot of people suffer from traumatic brain injuries and don’t really ever talk about it or express their frustrations unless they suffer from a severe or physically debilitating T.B.I. This is no way to go through life, communication is key in all aspects of life and relationships. I have found that most times I do not talk about my T.B.I. because I honestly don’t understand it. I know...

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...

Avoiding Business Failure

Posted by on in Biz Ops
Some reasons why businesses fail miserably   Because there are very few good jobs, many Veterans are turning to building their own business. They have several opportunities...such as franchises, direct product marketing, offering service to existing businesses, even buying an established business where the owner is ready to retire... Whatever way you decide to go, you'll want to understand why a business can fail.  Through the years we observe businesses who start out with a lot off fanfare and excitement and then within a couple of years you are unable to find the slightest sign that business ever existed. This is often...

FOX Video: Immediate Impact of Our Troop Cuts!

Posted by on in News
Pete Hegseth, a US combat veteran, speaks eloquently about the dangerous impact our current troop cuts are having on our national defense. With the recent rise of ISIS and global terrorism and the theft of atomic bomb material, and the impending wars in the Middle East, it seems incredible that preserving our military strength is no longer a priority! ...

A Special Citizen's Song 4 a Veteran

Posted by on in For Families
I wanted to tell you about my son, the song we wrote and about our family.  Nathan's grandpa turned 90 on July 7, 2014.  He fought in the Battle of the Bulge and carries shrapnel in his body to this very day. His name is Donald J. Watt.    My son Nathan is 22 years old. He was born with spina bifida and spent the majority of his childhood in a hospital. I have written the lyrics to several songs for Nathan and he writes the music and preforms it.  We wrote a song to honor his grandfather's 90th Birthday...
