Here is a thorough list of our programs. I have included a recommendation for each of our programs, for your confidence in the sincerity of our service.
HirePatriots.com: This is a jobs sites exclusively for US veterans. Our Careers job board lists employment openings for companies that are specifically looking for US veterans to fill them. – We also have a Day by Day job board that community residents use to hire local US military veterans or their spouses, when they need help with chores around their homes and yards. Active duty and veterans come to this site when they need to earn some extra money. They help local homeowners and get paid directly by them. – We also provide local HirePatriots job boards to communities and businesses for free.
John Eynouf/ Entrepreneur/ Veteran: Mark is one of the greatest Patriots I have ever met. His commitment and passion to helping Veterans is truly inspiring. With his help, I have started HirePatriots in Orlando, FL. Mark has helped train me to blog, attain media interviews, and setup the infrastructure for the HirePatriots program in Orlando. Thanks to Mark, I am now able to help my fellow Veterans find work when they return from Military service. He is an excellent mentor and I look forward to the future success of the HirePatriots program.
US Military Maintenance I began a cleaning maintenance business after the Marine Corps. I was unable to find employment to support my family. I had no choice but to create income on my own. I went through the “school of hard knocks.” But I became very successful. Now, I train US veteran how to do what I did, on a bar minimum budget. So far, I have created 85 US veteran owned Military Maintenance business across America. They employ hundreds of other veterans, at good wages, every day.
Tad Stuart/ Helicopter Pilot with AirMed: I am a new owner of a US Military Maintenance company in Utah. Marks dedication and mentoring is hands down above what was expected during this journey and start up. He offers his experience and guidance to all owners, anytime we need it. His dedication to the veteran community is outstanding.
Joe Padlo/ Founder/ Veterans Elite Services: When it comes to advocates for transitioning military veterans it is hard to find an equal to Mark Baird. Mark selflessly dedicates all of his time, effort and energy to ensuring veterans have a chance to be successful. He is a great mentor. Mark’s book, “The Patriotic Business Plan“, was written with the veteran first in mind. The book is a must read for every veteran who wants to run their own business and for any well-rounded business leader.
Soar 2 Success This is a business opportunity for US veterans. Soar to Success provides a Master Resiliency Course, that equips people with thinking skills and strategies that help us to effectively handle the physical, emotional and psychological challenges of life. The benefits of this program are universal. It is founded upon 30 years of scientific research and development; and, a collaborative effort between the US Army and the University of Pennsylvania. – We train veterans to bring this to schools, colleges and corporations.
Carl Vickers/ Global Veteran Strategy Lead at People Scout: Mark and Tori Baird are two of the most sincere individuals I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Their work with Veterans and their families through HirePatriots and Patriotic Hearts has truly been an inspiration to me. I recommend them for the level of integrity and honesty they bring to a cause that I am equally passionate about, assisting Veterans with employment and many other types of programs designed to make this world a better place. Thank you for all that you do both physically and spiritually for our military men and women and the loved ones that are also affected by their plight. We are ALL in this together.
Tim Pidcock/ Global Quality Management: I’ve been working with Mark and his wife, Tori, for the last several months. They have such an honorable approach to the cause at Patriotic Hearts. Military Vets and their families frequently have a difficult time transitioning to civilian careers. PatrioticHearts.org, HirePatriots.com and USMilitaryMaintenance.com are designed to address this difficulty for our men and women of the US Military. It’s an honor to work with Mark and Tori, and I give them and their program my highest recommendation.
Concerts Patriotic Hearts hosts outdoor concerts for US veterans and the general public to celebrate America and those that protect us. Our Green Planet Jam concert will be held on April 18, Earth Day, in upstate, near where Woodstock was held. It will have several notable bands, and fun events for all to have a great time.
Stephen Norred/ CEO Vets4Heroes USN Ret: Mark Baird is an American Patriot of the old school and trusted business partner. The only thing I know of that exceeds Marks efforts in assisting veterans and their families. Is the love and respect he holds for the veterans, their families, and the sacrifices they make every day for every one of us. To this cause, you will find some as committed, some as capable, but to find someone who touches so many life’s just when they seem to need it the most; you would be hard pressed to find another like Mark!
Military Marriage Retreats: The total commitment required by those who serve in our US Military often creates hardships in marriages and families that can tear them apart due to frequent absences and emotional stress. During times of war the divorce rate on some bases gets as high as 90%! To prevent these stalwart citizens from having to lose their marriages and families due to their defending our country, we host yearly 3-day, all expenses paid retreats at a 4-Star resort in the Oceanside Harbor, across from Camp Pendleton Marine Base.
Robert Kilmartin/ Administrative Judge, Department of Defense: Mark Baird has done more to help veterans transition and find employment than anybody I’ve ever met. He and his wife Tori have devoted themselves to this cause 24/7 through HirePatriots.com. They were enormously helpful to me during my own transition. Mark is an energetic, insightful, resourceful, and compassionate leader. He accomplishes a difficult mission and his selfless example is inspirational.
Steven Yuhas/Director of Congressional & Legislative Affairs, Senior Public Affairs Officer: At this time in our history we are at a crossroads of deciding whether or not we will allow veterans to fall through the cracks when it comes to employment or if we are going to engage and do something to stop that from happening. Mark is doing what he can to walk the walk and help our veterans find gainful employment while at the same time recognizing their skills are broad and they have a great deal to offer because of their leadership and military skills beyond pulling the trigger. With corporate sponsors the program to hire patriots will go far and it will take more than talk from the federal government to make it happen. Mark is a committed to veterans and veterans are better for it, but the need for his services will only increase over the next couple of years as the total force numbers fall and the need for veterans to get jobs in the private sector increases. Veterans are the hardest working people in the country and they will not let a company or individual down. They just need help being put in contact with the folks that are willing to hire them. The transition from the combat arms or signal corps to civilian life is hard, but with help veterans can do it and Mark is one of many that will be there for the long haul.
