This is an easy, simple, free way to thank our troops and their families, and to become the most popular business in your county and beyond. It has spread across the USA and been praised by US Presidents, Congress, the Pentagon, Chambers of Commerce, Business Journals, Military Leaders, and the Media.
HIRE PATRIOTS provides American Communities free access to a local job board especially for employing your area’s US Military, their spouses, and U.S. veterans looking to earn some extra income. Your free website and job board will have daily jobs posted by local residents and businesses when they need temporary labor for chores around their properties, homes, and offices. They pay the veterans directly.
This simple way of saying a meaningful THANK YOU to our Troops and their families was so successful in San Diego that over 150,000 veterans, and an equal number of residents and businesses have benefitted from it. We were awarded the county’s Visionary Award for creating Economic Development, and given $100,000. We are asked to be on TV, radio, in the press, and to give speaking engagements constantly. We were even appointed by our local Congressperson to advise the Congressional Military Affairs Committee. And then 2 US Presidents honored us with medals. Then FOX National Business News, NBC Evening News, and all the other stations came after us to be interviewed. People Magazine selected HirePatriots as their veteran hiring initiative. They also did a heart-wrenching article about a San Diego Special Forces disabled Navy veteran and how he is able to pay for the medical treatment his son, Dylan, who has advanced Leukemia, through the jobs he picks up on HirePatriots.
This job board is a tremendous help to Seniors. Many cannot afford professional assistance to help with chores and repairs. Too many live without hot water, a clean yard, a running toilet, clean windows, hauling that needs to be done, etc. – On your HirePatriots.com site, they can list their jobs for free and the amount they are able to pay.
Of course, US veterans absolutely love to hire from this site. And when you want get something done, you may have never seen how organized, fast, and strong active duty and recently transitioned men and women can be! They always practice ‘military courtesy’ too. It is always “Sir, and “Ma’am.” Read comments from people who have used this site: https://hirepatriots.com/testimonials.
There is another tremendous unseen benefit that your HirePatriots job board will produce: It creates friendships and bonds between military members and the civilian world. This is so important! Many veterans will tell you that the hardest and scariest thing they did in the military was to go back into the chaotic civilian world. They have been living under a strict structure and a far more disciplined environment. It takes a long time for many veterans to feel comfortable around civilians again. Unfortunately, it also makes it very difficult for them to keep their initial jobs. – There is a lot of upheaval that happens in a veteran’s life and in his family when they leave the military. When they continue to intersect with and form bonds with civilians throughout their military careers, it is of great value. They also have numerous civilian recommendations about their character, and work ethic. This is a big boost when they look for civilian employment.
Without meaning to be, Tori and I are two of the most well-known and people in San Diego County. Wherever we go in our white truck with HirePatriots lettering, people gather around it when they see it and wait for us to come back from shopping so that they can thank us, and tell us their personal stories. We even get invited to ride in a car in local parades!
That is why I think every USMM owner should have a HirePatriots.com website. Your company’s HirePatriots website will impact every demographic, business, and Chamber. Politicians will flock to have their pictures taken with you. We had the Admiral of the Navy invite us to dinner! The Vice President’s office called and asked if he could arrange to take a picture with us. And the leaders of battalions on military bases invite us to speak to those under their charge. Often, the media introduces us as “ great Americans.”
HirePatriots has a step-by-step plan for you to launch your site successfully. We have posters, flyers, business cards, and tons of social proof. Once you get this started it will spread by word of mouth. Then the media will come knocking on your door.
