A unique program in the Coachella Valley helps connect local Marines with their community.
It’s a website called hirepatriots.com, and it’s aimed at helping military men and women, veterans and their families.
The program was started by Southern California residents Mark and Tori Baird.
It’s a free job posting site, where employers can hire people who have served their country.
The website is active in 12 states, and the couple hopes to launch it nationwide soon.
They say it helps military men and women transition to civilian life. It’s also won many awards, including the Congressional Medal Of Merit.
