A July 4th to Remember

Posted by on in News
Have a fun 4th. -- My memories of this day are much different than this generations. Every home in every neighborhood in America would go and buy boxes of fireworks from temporary stands. They were everywhere and called Red Devil Fireworks stands. On the 4th,  hundreds of fireworks were going off all down every street in America. It started well before nightfall and went on all night. July 4th was America's block party. It was amazing, exciting, fun and very patriotic. Wish you knew that America. But you get a glimpse of it in the movie Sandlot.     Have a...

Find A Job Faster!

Posted by on in News
Important Tips for job Seekers Never tell a fib on a resume. It will turn around and bite you in the ass, sooner or later.  Your qualifications and achievements are more important than your education and job history. What skills and talents do you possess? How have companies profited from hiring you? How did you affect their bottom line?  Too, a general resume that you use for any job that you apply for is not very helpful, unless you stay within the same industry or job title. Even then, every submitted resume should be customized for each job application. -- Many...

A Fine Example of a SDVOB

Posted by on in For Businesses
A Fine Example of a SDVOB An SDVOB is a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Business. You are probably doing business with one or a few right now. US veterans make up 30% of all US business owners, even though they constitute just about 10% of our nation's population. It is obvious that military service produces entrepreneurs that provide services, products and employment more than any other demographic. -- I want to introduce one of them.

The Best Business to Make Lots of Money Fast

Posted by on in News
The Best Business for US Veterans It is not glamorous, but it is quick and easy to build and is one of the most lucrative business to own. I have built several of these commercial maintenance businesses over my lifetime, while teaching school and coaching sports during the day. I had accounts up and down the state and employed dozens of people.  Owning janitorial businesses enabled me to have a heck of a lot more fun than most entrepreneurs and employees. After my first 5 years, I was virtually free to do whatever I wanted. It enabled me to devote myself entirely...

Military Marriages

Posted by on in For Families
US Military Marriages US military members and veterans have always suffered the highest rate of divorce. Of the myriad of sacrifices each them makes in service to our country, this is another. During the years 2004 to 2010 our enlisted, combat veterans had a 90% divorce rate! Think of how many people suffered because of each of these marriages that could not stay connected: children, family, friends… Helping these couples and families to regain the deep love that connects them and to forgive, understand, trust and embrace again is the one of the greatest blessings we can give. This is a...

America's Warriors: Got to Love Them

Posted by on in News
USMC General Mattis' comment is so outrageous that it is funny and makes me laugh, at first. Then, I realize he means it and for good reasons. And I stop laughing.  Google General Mattis and read some more of his quotes. He cuts to the bone so quickly with his plain speech that the sting makes us giggle: then his meaning sinks in. General Mattis is a man that loves America and a man that has spent his life defending and leading men like himself. He deserves the honor of being listened to. Here is a link to his YouTube postings:...

Black Holes

Posted by on in General
Black Holes suck in everything, especially light and crushes or dissolves it into empty nothingness. Do you know anyone like that? Black Holes also suck us into their spinning funnels. There are days and times of everyone's life where everything seems void and meaningless. It is difficult to get up on those mornings and hard to sleep at night. That is when the critical importance of 'routines' kicks in. Clean or heads and bodies; eat well; go to work; treat others as we would have them treat us; smile anyway. Hold on, persevere and do not allow the darkness defeat you....

Why We Serve US Veterans

Posted by on in News
What compelled you to sell your home and start HirePatriots.com back in 2005? This is a frequent question we are asked. Here is our answer: We had been working to assist US veterans for many years before HirePatriots. I have been involved with getting veterans back on their feet after returning to the civilian world since 1970. Tori and I got married in 1990. She joined me in counseling with Vietnam combat veterans in a facility for those with severe PTSD, alcoholism, drugs, and anger. Our purpose then and now is to assist them in being able to return to work and a...
