I have been working with US veterans that have war trauma since 1970, during the Vietnam War. Plus, I struggle with PTSD myself. For these veterans leaving the military and re-entering civilian life is often difficult. They have a hard time keeping any job and supporting themselves and their families.  I created my One Day job board particularly for them. These are jobs posted by local community residents who need an extra hand with chores and repairs. here in San Diego, we have had well over 100,000 veterans take these jobs. They literally have been a life saver! Many guys can...

Memorial Day: A Day for Mourning

Posted by on in News
Dear fellow U.S. citizens of all stripes and colors: On May 30 of every year, Americans across our nation dedicate a day to remembering our war dead. It is a solemn occasion. Decorating the graves of our Armed Forces who died in combat is a tradition we have kept since the Civil War. It is good and right that we should and must do so. They all deserve this day. It is the least that we can do for their willingness to give their lives to protect ours. I have attended many Memorial Day events in parks and at national cemeteries....

In Defense of The Wounded Warrior Project

Posted by on in News
Recently CBS and some other news and media agencies have publicized some areas of concern about how donations to The Wounded Warrior Project, a premier veteran charity, have been spent. The criticism focuses mostly on expenditures on trips, meetings, conventions, hotels and first class airfare. But they failed to say that those expenses were just about 7% of their total revenue. That does not seem unreasonable for a nationwide charity with locations all across America. The Wounded Warrior Project was founded by a dear, old friend of mine, John Melia. He is a humble and honest man. He is my age...

Your Job Search after 35

Posted by on in News
Advice from a CEO You have lived long and accomplished a lot. You know that you can be an effective employee for a company if given the opportunity. You have a proven track record. And you have written a thorough list of it all. However, the purpose of a resume is not to get a job; it is to get an interview. So we do not want to give our entire work history, just highlights that will spark interest so the company will invite you in to hear more. Instead of long list of your duties and accomplishments, summarize them. The ideal...

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...
