What about the day after Thanksgiving?

Posted by on in News
Many of us that care about veteran unemployment and homelessness pitch in during the holidays, at Veteran Shelters and homeless programs. I dig it. love it. I support it. But what about the day after Thanksgiving?  As we settle in for a long weekend of  football, yummy turkey sandwiches, and way, way, way, too much pie, I worry about the next day.   For many years now, my husband and I have been involved in solving Veteran Unemployment. My first assistant in the early years of HirePatriots.com was a transitioning Marine Sargent. She was also a Marine wife.  Her name was...

Ferguson: Blacks vs. Whites in America

Posted by on in News
Blacks make up 12% of the US population, yet more than half of them are incarcerated in US prisons!  How can this be explained? Blacks are 5 times more likely to be arrested than Whites. Is this because other races are more moral and have greater intrinsic virtue? Of course not! The belief in equality of all human beings and US citizens is the foundation of our nation and its Constitution. The American Black race, its culture and society, needs our concerted effort to finally bring them into the same world and reality as many of the rest of us experience: a...

What to Do for Thanksgiving

Posted by on in News
Remembering and recounting our blessings is a very important thing for us to do. Otherwise, we take everything we have for granted. We become ungrateful and brutish. Imagine how astonishingly thankful our ancestors were who first founded America. Persecuted in Europe, they fled to a land flowing with “milk and honey.” They now had the chance to build a new world. They could live in freedom and without fear of punishment for their particular belief in God. They and their families had a magnificent opportunity to establish themselves in a society of their own making.   Looking back at their lives’...

A Business 4 US Veterans

Posted by on in Biz Ops
As founder of HirePatriots, I have spent every waking minute of my last ten years helping US veterans get employed or to start and succeed in business. Now, I am mentoring US veterans to do what I did for 35 years, before beginning my non-profit. America is about opportunity. It offers people an open door to achieve. This is true for all US citizens and immigrants to our country. How many millions have risen to a far better life because of the availability to start you own business in America? Most new businesses begin small and then build from there over...

The Value of US Military Service

Posted by on in News
Serving in the US military has many personal benefits. Most new recruits are young men and women whose character has not yet been completely formed. Military training shapes them into confident, disciplined, hard working, courteous citizens.  Everyone in the US military has a job to do. They know that each member is an essential part of the whole. Their job is just as important as anyone else's. Teamwork is a primary principle learned.  Perhaps the greatest benefit of serving our country is purpose. Young men and women need this. We all do.

Start a Great Business for Less Than You Think

Posted by on in Biz Ops
When I was in my twenties I tried to find my spot in the work world. I had several jobs: working in restaurants, digging ditches, delivering mail, sales… I just could not find anything that worked for me and that I could see myself doing for a few decades. I felt lost. Then one day, when I was dropping my daughter off at pre-school, I heard the director complaining about their floor and how badly it needed to be refinished. I had worked as janitor for the school district and waxed and polished hundreds of floors. So I proposed to the...

Tori Baird: Community Service Leader

Seeing so many "Support our Troops" stickers after the start of the Iraq war, Tori Baird was inspired to think of ways to help that had not yet been considered.

So she created a way for the citizens from her city and those of San Diego County to help. San Diego County has over 250,000 active duty US Marines, sailors, coasties, and soldiers. On top of all of the stress of serving...
