Why Veteran Owned Businesses are Important to Society

Posted by on August 3, 2017 in News

This article gives the reader a deeper understanding of our US Veteran experience and challenges, and a way to help them get started in business.

The impact of veteran owned businesses is far greater than most civilians realize. Citizens that serve in our nation’s Armed Forces are bound by their mutual experiences, hardships, and often times the adrenalin, effects, and memories of combat. Their camaraderie is life-long.

One of the hardest trials veterans face is when they leave the US Military and rejoin the civilian world. Most enlisted as teenagers. They get out as mature adults in many ways. But their return to civilian life is handicapped by the lack of a civilian social network and employment experience. In some ways it is like waking up from a coma that occurred when they were 18.

When they seek employment they are always asked, “Do you have any work experience?” They certainly do! But it is not recognized as relevant too often in the civilian workplace. Finding sustainable employment is particularly difficult for them, and too often takes too long. Some drop into poverty while waiting for that door to open.

Many of this generation of American veterans have served in combat in Iraq, Afghanistan, and in other dangerous spots on the globe, either in the Infantry or in support positions. Participating in killing people, even if it is only on a computer screen, changes people. And seeing your friends die in combat is also very hard and never forgotten.

The best and easiest transition from the military is to find employment in a veteran owned business with other US veterans . They have been drilled for years on how to work effectively together as squads, platoons, regiments, battalions, and divisions. They thoroughly understand logistics and what it takes to accomplish a mission, no matter how difficult.

US Military Maintenance creates new, and successful veteran business owners. In the last three years, 45 USMM businesses have been created. They are employing hundreds US veterans with good wages that enable them to support themselves and their families.

US Military Maintenance is a professional Maintenance company that focuses on employing US veterans and paying them livable salaries. Our USMM veterans have years of experience in keeping everything “Inspection Ready” in the US Military. Now, they are providing this expertise to Contractors, Facility Managers, and Commercial and Residential Property Managers that require and expect superior services. We are a single source solution for every Maintenance need.

The 501c3 non-profit, Patriotic Hearts, created this program to develop successful veteran owned businesses. They provide everything a veteran needs to get started and to be successful. We chose residential and commercial maintenance because it is the least expensive business to start, and it is able to earn income immediately. Our owners exceed $10,000 in their first 4 weeks. By their 3rd year some are grossing close to a million dollars, and employing 50+ veterans.

US Military Maintenance has been approached by numerus nationwide business that want to employ our local owners for the maintenance of their commercial offices. Our owners are becoming Prime Contractors, and they are able to bid on multi-million dollar contracts. We are exploding across America!

Our growth is an opportunity for you. You can sponsor a new USMM business owner and earn 5% of their businesses’ monthly gross earnings. Many of the veterans who approach us to become USMM owners are wonderful, hard-working, well educated people. But they do not have the $3500 they need to get started in this business. That $3500 pays for:

All necessary Equipment, customized Website and Blog, QuickBooks and Payment Processing software, monthly Google Ads, Certifications (Green, HazMat, BBP), Business & Marketing Plan, Logos, Mentoring by USMM founders and owners, a customized Facebook page; and, a customized, local HirePatriots website for their community.

With an small investment of $3500 you can help them get started. You will enable these US Veterans to build a business that employs other US veterans at good wages. And you will earn a monthly residual income for doing so.

US Military Maintenance businesses are sky-rocketing! Their rapid success has been amazing. There are US veterans all across America who are clamoring to become a part if this great business.

This is a higher cause opportunity. It is about much more than making money. It is a sensational way to Thank our US Veterans and to usher them back into our civilian society as productive citizens. Plus, it will make you feel great!

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.
