Default Hire Heroes USA

This is a charity founded by UFC fighter Brain Stann. It's focus is helping American veterans find employment after they are discharged from the military. I hope everyone will follow the link, learn about this amazing charity & donate:

EDIT: Please make sure to watch the interview Brian did with CSPAN. It's roughly 30min long, and amazingly informative. Brian is really passionate and very well spoken. Had to struggle not to tear up a coupla times.

Veterans should have almost a GUARANTEE of employment after their tour is up. If you sign up.. get training.. do your job.. and then get out.. you have done a servic for your country that most people are not even going to really think about doing.

I was passed over for a job that I wanted years ago, for a guy that came out of the Air Force. Main reason.. military background. I didn't like it, but I understood it.

Most companies want Veterans. I know the one I work for does.

I heard about this a while back but forget where. I think it's great. Veterans are heroes and should get much better treatment than they do by both the govt and the general public.
