Like Vietnam All Over Again for Returning US Vets

The average vet transitioning out of our military for the last 5 years is taking 3 years or longer before they can find sustainable employment. In many ways, what happened after Vietnam is happening again.

We have a unique solution. The US residents that so proudly 'supported' our 'troops' during the war, can continue doing so by posting Day Jobs on Whenever they need help with any chores or repairs around their homes and yards, they can hire a local US veteran to do it. -- In San Diego we find so many jobs everyday for their sailors and Marines that San Diego gave us their Visionary Award for Creating Economic Development. We were also voted the most popular News story of the year twice.

We provide jobs for over 100,000 US veterans a year from our free job board, both Temporary and Full Time jobs. And our niche website ( ranks in the top 40,000 websites in the United States.

We are expanding across the country with the help of veteran owned and patriotic businesses. We do this by giving these companies their own, customized HirePatriots website. (Those sites also rank in the top 1% of all US websites.) Then we use our popular cause and website to market their business. At the same time, we are also marketing HirePatriots.

So we enter into a synergistic Cause Marketing relationship that builds your customer base and ours by providing a free job board for the residents and companies in your region of the country to use for free. Companies that have their own HirePatriots site, job board and blog also reduce recruiting expenses, since thousands of job seeking US veterans will come to their site looking for work.


We also expand your network by giving you a blog and teaching you how to reach millions on the social networks. And we show you how to use our cause to get free TV, radio and press exposure. We have been on all of the major news networks many times. And we continue to be because of the unique new stories our website creates everyday.

HirePatriots is a program of our 501c3 non-profit, Patriotic Hearts. We provide assistance to veteran entrepreneurs, free 3 day retreats for veterans’ marriages, welcome home parties, job fairs, veteran housing, and the creation of our own jobs for US veterans.

All it takes to enter into a life-time marketing relationship with HirePatriots and to receive your own HirePatriots website is to make an agreed upon donation to our charity.

If you want to continue to support our troops and their families, please contact us. And in the meantime, please post any jobs you have, either around your home or office for free here:

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.
