How to Solve Veteran Unemployment

U.S. Military Maintenance is a program of the 501c3 non-profit, Patriotic Hearts. The purpose of this program is to help US veteran entrepreneurs to start and develop a successful commercial maintenance company of their own. We create and build up these veteran owned businesses. In return, they hire other US veterans, and pay them good wages. -- Our goal is to create US Military Maintenance businesses throughout each state and to collectively employ 100,000 US veterans. This is how to solve veteran unemployment: Creating successful veteran owned businesses that employ veterans at a good wage. We also desire to set an example for other veteran initiatives and V.O.B.s to follow.

Mentorship: I have all owned and built up several successful commercial maintenance businesses over several decades. I am now focused on teaching US veterans how to do so too. The commercial maintenance business is the least expensive to start, the easiest to build, and the fastest business to make a million dollars within 3 years. In the last two years, I have helped more than 2 dozen US veterans start successful commercial maintenance businesses. I have taken many from the brink of financial hopelessness to employing dozens of US veterans at good wages, and earning enough to hire others to manage their business as they spend more time with their families, and enjoy life.

After reading the rest of this article, come back and click this link to another post that gives you profiles, pictures, and links to some of our USMM owners: You Can Start This Business.

Marketing Plan: US Military Maintenance offers you an amazing marketing plan, developed to lift our USMM business owners far above their competition. We combine your business with the extremely popular mission to get veterans hired. We do not approach potential clients as just a ‘maintenance business.’ We start with our cause: Honoring local veterans through employment. We present ourselves as US veterans that are “putting a dent in veteran unemployment.’ We ask businesses if they would like to ‘join us in honoring our local US military, veterans, and their families.’ We raise the conversation to a higher level.

USMM business owners receive their own USMM website. They also receive a free community website and job board for your community to hire local US military, veterans, and their spouses: a customized website. It has a blog, and two job boards: Our One Day job board is primarily for residents that need an extra hand with chores and repairs for a day, or a few. Our Careers job board is for companies to hire your region's veterans on a more permanent basis.

As an associate of USMM and HirePatriots you are able to introduce yourself as the “Director of a non-profit program that creates jobs for US veterans.” (Patriotic Hearts) This is the key to getting huge amounts of free media and also speaking engagements. You will also be the HirePatriots leader in your community that will offer our multiple programs that enhance the lives of veterans. You will represent a popular, nationwide program that has won awards from two US Presidents, Congress, and the Pentagon. HirePatriots was also featured in People Magazine as “America’s Heroes Among Us.” And we have received voluminous media coverage locally and nationally. We have been featured on FOX National Business News, NBC Nightly News. ABC TV did a segment about our One Day jobs program and gave us their ‘Leadership Award.’ – The news media in your area will clamor to tell your story and to promote your USMM business because of its alliance with our award winning non-profit.

As our non-profit’s local veteran representative, you can also speak at local chambers of commerce, at veteran orgs, and various community service clubs, such as Rotary Clubs whose members are mostly business owners. – This free media, and speaking opportunities, will be a tremendous boost in getting new clients.

Our Vision for You: US Military Maintenance is looking for US veterans that are driven to succeed. Our personal mentoring and marketing plan is a million dollar opportunity. Several of our USMM owners are already grossing well over that, and hiring dozens of US veterans. -- The bigger we make your business, the more US veterans you can employ: This is our motivation.

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.
