Hire a Local US Vet for a Day

Whenever you have a job or repair, hire aUS Armed Forces member from your local US Military base or a US Veteran in your community. It is a wonderful and practical way to say “Thanks!”.  

An injured Marine came to our door one day after returning from Iraq. He discovered that his wife had lost her job while he was deployed, and that she and their two small children had lived for several weeks without any utilities except for cold water.

He was looking for immediate work to provide for his family. He asked if there was any work or repairs that I needed done, so that he could earn some money. – That is how HirePatriots and our One day job board got started.

Our US Military, especially the “grunts” in the lower ranks of the Infantry, endure incredible hardships. And yet they serve our country honorably and bravely. — And when they need extra money for their families, bills, car, or to have some fun, they come to

And our US veterans who have just recently returned to civilian life often need these extra jobs to support themselves and their families while looking for full time employment.

Spouses of our US veterans are also invited to apply for these Day jobs. They help pay the family bills.

If you are a patriotic resident of America, please give consideration to hiring a local troop or vet the next time you need help around your home, yard or business.

Hello, I'm Mark Baird and I founded Hire Patriots. My wife and I are 'helpers.' We are concerned about meeting the practical needs of our US veterans veterans and their families. We began a job board for local residents to post chores that they need help with. It has been very successful. Thousands of local US Military and veterans partially or entirely support themselves from our website. We are looking for others near US Military bases who would also like to have a website for their location. We also hold welcome home parties, military marriage retreats, job fairs and create military family gardens.
