Are military spouses veterans?

Posted by on October 1, 2010 in Uncategorized

Military Spouses: We honor you!

Military spouses and their children are as close to being veterans as one can be without actually joining the US Military. They too have served. HirePatriots.com recognizes this and welcomes Military spouses to use our job boards.

HirePatriots.com was begun because a wife of a Marine lost her job while he was overseas. She had two small children in day care. That was $500 a month per child at the base day care center. She knew that she could not afford it. But how could she look for work with her babies with her? But she didn’t find any work. One morning the family car wasn’t there. It had been repossessed. Now she was stuck!

Her husband had been injured. She didn’t mention any of their desperate circumstances when they spoke on the phone. She lied: “”Everything is going great!” Because of his injuries, it was taking much longer than expected for him to return home.

The night that her husband did return home and saw how she and the kids were living, instead of hugging her, he yelled at her. The kids started crying. She started crying. He left, slamming the door!

It was not the homecoming either of them expected or needed. Everything went all wrong and what was very bad was now worse.

But being a Marine, he took immediate action. He knocked on my door across the way. “Sir,” he said, standing a straight as his injuries would allow. “I need to get some bills paid. Do you have any work that you need done around your home, or any repairs? I’m a good worker and I need to earn some money for my family, fast.”

HirePatriots.com, especially its local One Day job board, was created for military families like this and for all the others. We recognize that you are esteemed and honorable citizens that perform extraordinary duties on our behalf. We show you our appreciation by posting jobs for you on HirePatriots.com. We are always trying to get more citizens involved. We want there always to be a job available on our website whenever a US Military GI, a US veteran or their spouses need to earn extra money, or find a full time job.

Dear military spouses, my wife and myself and all of our regional leaders, recognize and appreciate your service to our country, especially to our Armed Forces. God bless you, and your families!

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 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 HirePatriots.com website for their location. Find more information about our military programs at PatrioticHearts.org. And please make a contribution of any kind. Thank you.
