Almost a year ago, two journalists were killed and one severely
injured by an IED in Iraq. Every media outlet in the country seemed to trip all
over themselves trying to tell the American people about these "brave
journalists". There were specials aired during prime time, full front page
articles on almost every national newspaper and most local papers. And in every
single article was this vague and nonspecific notation: "A U.S. soldier and an
Iraqi translator also died in the blast."
Mark and Tori Baird began
www.HirePatriots.com after seeing so many young military men and women in town
and then going home and watching the news in Iraq
disturbed them. They asked themselves, "What
can we do to make their lives a little easier and to
show our appreciation for their sacrifice and duty?"
-- They thought about it and came up with this idea
to help those who serve in the military earn extra
money on their days off.
