HirePatriots’ Community Program for Schools

Posted by on in Community
When I was a teacher in the Southwest Los Angeles I always made sure that all of students got a “Letter to the Editor” published in the Los Angeles Times before the end of the year. It had an amazing result! I saw children with no self-esteem transformed.   Today, being published in the Times or any paper is not what it used to be, especially to this new generation of school students. The Internet is where to be seen and appreciated. After several decades of developing the minds and hearts of students, for the last ten years I have been...

 Veterans Families Get New Benefits   Although the Veterans’ Access to Care through Choice, Accountability, and Transparency Act of 2014 focused on the VA Health Care Crisis, it included two important GI Bill education benefit changes.  The first change expands the Marine Gunnery Sergeant John David Fry Scholarship to include surviving spouses of service members who die in the line of duty on or after September 11, 2001.

Huge Waves of Unemployed US Veterans Coming

How can we do this to these young men and women who serve us so selflessly and faithfully? Something must be done now to avoid this tragedy! HirePatriots is coming to the rescue with a new and...

Stop Drugging our US Veterans!

Posted by on in News
Our US veterans are being abused by routinely being prescribed huge amounts of drugs. The easy answer to keep our infantry fighting when they are affected psychologically, due to combat, critical fatigue, exhaustion, depression, and wounds is to medicate them with very powerful psychotropic pharmaceuticals. Is it a coincidence that our troops have a higher rate of suicide than anyother generation? Why are we seeing an increase of PTSD diagnosis? Why are so many military wives seeing dramatic changes in the husbands they once knew as their best friend? What damage is being done to our young men and women who...

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...
