Everything HirePatriots does is definitely unique. We never duplicate the efforts of any organization already successfully accomplishing something beneficial. We always look for new strategies and the implementation of new technologies in order to find different and better solutions. Our job board is original, as are our job fairs, recruiting techniques, training programs, seminars, website, marriage retreats and welcome home parties.

Thank you, HirePatriots for honoring our military heroes and for sharing the legacy of the U.S. military with our younger generation as a sponsor of this public event. During National Military Appreciation Month, we ask Americans to remember the important role of our U.S. Armed Forces in the history and development of our country, lending an ideal time to honor St. Thomas More Middle School of Rapid City, South Dakota as top-fundraiser for being the school to collect the most relief items. These relief items were contributed to the second-annual Veteran’s Holiday Relief Drive, founded and organized by Autumn Simunek, Miss...

Back in 2010 when I was getting out of the US ARMY I realized that there were serious problems with the process which is known as ACAP (Army Career & Alumni Program). Since then I vowed to one day contribute to making the program better for service members that were transitioning back into civilian life so that they would have the best chance not only in job placement but life in general. When we look at the programs that are in place to help our services members when it comes to reintegration, job placement and financial planning we have to ask...

VETERANS AND THE WORKPLACE

Posted by on in News
The workplace can be an extremely frustrating place for most veterans, it has most of the things that we tend to veer away from. Workplaces have a decent amount of people from the employees to the customers, most are loud and every workplace has some type of conflict going on at one point or another. What you have to remember at this point is that you must always remain in control and it is truly important to think before you speak. This is especially true if you feel yourself starting to get angry in a professional environment, remember that you...

REINTEGRATION: THE STARTING LINE (PART 1 of 5)

Posted by on in News
This is the first part of a five part miniseries focusing on the process known as reintegration for our nation’s services members. Over the next few weeks I will talk about the five parts of reintegration that I have titled: The Starting Line, Finding Your Pace, Hitting Your Stride, Hitting the Wall (The Stigma) and the Finish Line. The time known as reintegration can be extremely scary and stressful for our nation’s services members no matter what the age.

Last night I was on the phone with Mark and Tori discussing ideas for new topics to help me move forward with this blog. Mark observed that no one has given a service member’s perspective on the loss of Fallujah. The general population isn’t aware of the sacrifices US troops made to take Fallujah, whether it be loss of eye sight, limbs, or the ultimate sacrifice. If you were to ask what exactly we lost in Fallujah and why you should care, I would tell you this; we lost 4,500 of some of the best, most courageous men and women...

Misinformed media is largely responsible for reinforcing within the national conscience the theory that combat-exposure and PTSD are not only indelibly linked but that the one necessitates the other. Evidence abounds to the contrary.    Lt. Col. Dave Grossman's On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society comments on Swank & Marchand's 1946 illustration that after 60 days of sustained combat, 98% of combat personnel are psychiatric casualties. While the term "psychiatric casualties" those who experience mental exhaustion related to war that renders them unfit to continue combat duty, the condition is both natural and temporal (in most...

Today I would like to take a moment to introduce a very dear friend and colleague Mr. Robbie Greyson, he is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to PTSD and I will periodically share things that he sends me in hopes of enlightening our whole community when it comes to things that directly effect Veterans, their families and job opportunities.     In 2000 I founded an alternative school in an affluent community seventeen miles south of Nashville, Tennessee. That school was my full-time job until 2011. From the athlete to the musician to the evangelist to the author, I had...

An Opportunity for the Unemployed

Posted by on in News
Personally I have gone through many periods of unemployment in my life, just ask my wife, I am sure she will tell you all about it.

Now I am not trying to sell books today but I am writing to those of you that have been unemployed for awhile and have lost hope of finding a job.

You Can Solve Veteran Unemployment

Posted by on in News
This is the crisis US veterans are facing. And here is the solution too.    We have 700,000 unemployed 9/11 veterans today. Next year we are pushing out 1.3 million active duty US military personnel. We could see 2,000,000 unemployed 9/11 US veterans in 2014!  There are just as many non-9/11 veterans that are unemployed.  There are twice as many US veterans who are underemployed and cannot pay all of their bills each month. They are sinking deeper into poverty and debt each day!   The US government tax credits for companies that hire US veterans is expiring at end of this year. US corporations have been hiring...
