Lately, the lame stream media always reports how the job market is getting better and things are ok. This is far from the truth. Veterans are coming home to find they can’t obtain gainful employment once they have separated from their branch of service. This is a disgrace and needs to be called out.
I ran across this article and I felt compelled to share this information with you all. Our Veterans deserve more than what the current administration is doing for them. It falls on the citizens of this great nation to fill in the gaps that Uncle Sam is unable to. This is where Hire Patriots comes in. I ask that you share this information with everyone you know. If one of our Heroes may be able to get a job from this article; I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Here is information from Hire Patriot’s website:
HirePatriots.com was launched in 2005. The founders were living next door to Camp Pendleton Marine Base. One
day a Marine who had just returned home from Iraq knocked on their door. “Sir,” he said, “I just got back from deployment and found out that my wife was laid-off a couple of months before I got back home. And when I got back today I found out that our utilities were turned off. So I need to earn some extra money to make sure that we can have lights and heat before my kids go to sleep tonight. – Is there any work or repairs that I can do for you around your home or yard?”
Our founders wanted to just give the Marine the money he needed; but, he insisted on working for it. So he cleaned their house, did yardwork and fixed the carburetor on an old car they had. The Marine earned $100 that day and got his bills paid.
After that our founders created HireMarines.com to see if any other residents wanted to hire local Marines. Within a few months 10,000 residents and Marines were coming to the site every week! — The website changed its name to HirePatriots.com when the sailors in San Diego asked if they could use the site too.
The site has been a tremendous help to active duty, Reserves and Guard since. And now it is providing a daily source of income for transitioned troops all across America. HirePatriots has helped over 500,000 US veterans find employment to date. But there is a lot more work to do. Nearly 50% of current transitioned veterans are taking more than 3 years before they find sustainable employment. This is devasting to them and their families.
The mission of HirePatriots is to create a nationwide employment safety net for US veterans. So wherever a veteran lives in the US, they can find work every day, with either a One Day, Temporary or Full Time job from the HirePatriots website.
HirePatriots is represented by veteran owned and patriotic businesses across America. Each has their own HirePatriots site and job board for their area. But there are many more states and communities that HirePatriots needs to reach in order to achieve their goal of 100% employment for every willing and able US veteran.
Thank you all for reading and may God bless our Military Men and Women.
