A US Veteran’s Story Joe Padlo had a good job. He was financially comfortable. He had transitioned well after being in Marine Corps for 12 years. He was a manager, Regional Director, VP, and President as he advanced in his career.  But he wasn’t satisfied. He felt a need to do more with his life. Then he read about an opportunity to own a business that employs other US veterans. He decided to give it a shot. US Military Maintenance is a program of the nationally respected non-profit Patriotic Hearts that focuses on assisting US military, veterans and their families. USMM...

From Homeless Vet to hiring Vets!

Posted by on in Jobs For Veterans
A single day's work can be transformative for any Veteran, especially one fighting his way back from homelessness and addiction. I know this because I am a Veteran and was once in need of not only a well-paying job but a safe place to live. I got both with help from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and formed my company, Veterans Moving Help, to provide the dignity of work to other Veterans. My journey wasn't easy. I'd been in the U.S. Army and benefited from its strong support system. When I returned home in 1987, I lost that...

Faith of Our Fathers arrives in theaters on July 1st.  Fathers’ Day is coming up,  and Faith of Our Fathers  is a great way to celebrate the Godly Fathers. The film begins  with Vietnam War raging in 1969,  as  two young fathers report for duty. A man of great faith and a doubtful cynic. A quarter-century later, their sons, Wayne and John Paul (David A.R. White and Kevin Downes), meet as strangers. Guided by letters handwritten from their fathers from the battlefield, they embark on an unforgettable journey to The Wall—the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. Along the way, they...

Martial Law? Training Op Lists 'Hostile' US States     Jennifer Wishon CBN News   WASHINGTON -- This summer, the U.S. military is planning an unprecedented training exercise, happening across seven states on private lands and towns in the Southwest. The Jade Helm 15 operation is making many residents feel uneasy. Speculation about why the military wants to train in American communities instead of on military bases is fueling a growing number of theories across the Internet and social media. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has even asked his National Guard to monitor it. So what is Jade Helm 15? According to the U.S. Army...

An American Crisis: Veterans’ Unemployment

Posted by on in News
Stand by Them | How You Can Help | Solutions Mark Baird Whether you are Blue, Red or some other spectrum like me, this book should be read. It shares the American voices and ideas and answers from people in a variety of ethnicities, fields and experiences about one of these foundational pillars of our society: US military veterans. It is time for a comprehensive and permanent solution to US veteran unemployment to be put into place for perpetuity. The technology of the 21st century allows us to do so.

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...

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...

It's a real tough road for ANY business to stay "alive" in this economy with the amount of competition out there today. One of the toughest things to obtain is the funding needed to open, sustain and grow. Banks have decided that they are able to send a lot of small business away preferring instead to focus on more established companies that already have loads of money and have established a relationship with the local bank. The banks have become afraid to "step out there" and help the individual who may be new in business. Many people to include veterans are...

  No. 1: Identify your audience. It may seem like a no-brainer, but many businesses fail to identify just who to talk to. Once you know “who” then you can go about “how” to reach them. No. 2: Reaching out to local media One of your audiences will invariably be the media. You can’t pitch all media outlets the same way. TV has different needs from print and radio and vice versa. But before you pitch ask yourself: • Is your product or service the first, best or brand new? • Is it award-winning or trendsetting? • Does it solve a...

Quality the Foundation of Organizational Success Edward Deming a statistician transformed the business world with the introduction of statistical process control. The basis of Deming’s philosophy was an organizations relentless commitment to exceptional quality and the sustained aspiration to achieve zero defects. This way of thinking was not aligned with the prevalent thinking in American business circles following WWII, which accepted a certain level of quality defects and instead focused on mass production, continued sales and limited competition as the formula for organizational success. Spurned by the auto manufacturing community in America Deming took his knowledge and talent to Japan and...

June 15, 1864, 200 acres of a 1,100-acre estate in Northern Virginia were officially designated for use as a national cemetery. Today, approximately 400,000 individuals are interred or inurned at the 624-acres of hallowed ground we know as Arlington National Cemetery. While the cemetery was born out of the Civil War, there are veterans of every one of America’s conflicts, from the American Revolution through today, interred there. The stories of the men and women laid to rest at Arlington, known and unknown, are the stories of America. By the end of the Civil War, there were approximately 15,000 service members...

Veterans between 20-35 have a higher unemployment rate than non-veterans. This will be a positive news for our veterans who are living in NY. The new state law gives businesses up to $5,000 in tax credits when hiring a veteran full-time. The amount goes up to $15,000 if that veteran is disabled. A different bill creates funds to help homeless veterans find housing. New Yorkers can contribute when filling out income taxes.   http://www.mychamplainvalley.com/story/d/story/hire-a-vet-tax-credit-among-ny-laws-going-into-eff/70462/IOp4QIcom0CSiEFNykgpQQ     Roshan Chandrasekara http://hirepatriots.com/FortBragg  ...
