Why I became involved in HirePatriots: My Vision & Hope

Posted by on March 17, 2011 in Uncategorized

Wil Corey: MA Vet & HirePatriots Leader

This past September I lost My job. I was devastated. There is not much of a hope finding a position as a Master Upholster. It is a dying trade. I knew that right away. That’s the bad news. The good news I am a US ARMY Veteran.

I went to the Plymouth Career Center. Where I met Mike Kelley who is the (DVOP) at Plymouth Career Center. Set me up to take a lot of classes and to join the Vet team up And join VET NET Plymouth MA. There I met Richard Sampson and Craig Clifton. They taught me how to set up My MASS, JobQuest and LinkedIn profiles. Then I met Ronald Loto and David Seymour. All of these people have a passion for helping Veterans.

I caught the passion myself. I got pretty good at LinkedIn and started helping our vets as a TA. I joined groups on LinkedIn, made connections, participated in discussion and tried to help connections. The Passion grew stronger.

I had a great conversation with one of the most Patriotic Americans alive today, Mark Baird. One thing led to another I have the privilege and responsibility of being the Regional Leader of Massachusetts HirePatriots.

I wake up thinking of HirePatriots I love being able to make a positive difference in peoples lives all day. I go to sleep thinking of HirePatriots. Well, I might as well admit it I dream of HirePatriots.

Yes, I dream of HirePatriots I have a vision of HirePatriots having one day / odd jobs posted all over the state. — Our off duty GIs, and young Veterans and their families pick up these jobs. Getting the money to pay bills.

I hope more companies will sponsor us and help get the word out. We need businesses to post their openings for FULL and PART TIME positions on our web site.

When I became a soldier I took an Oath to Defend Our Constitution. I took that very seriously. I have never stopped defending it. Helping our people who have taken the same oath I did is an Honor. I know that they are Special. So our their families. I also know I am not alone, there is a Comradeship in the Military and Veteran community.

About The Author
Mark Baird

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.
